Happy Birthday to Santa Cruz and Me!

September 24 is a very important date here in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. It is my city’s birthday, the first day of Spring and Friendship day all rolled into one. My birthday is also on September 30!

To celebrate this fabulous month, if you purchase two of my lesson plan e-books any day over the next three days (starting tomorrow Sept. 27-29) I will send you a free e-book of your choice or better still, send it to one of your friends.

To participate, this is what you need to do:

1. Purchase 2 e-books from the link here.

2. Email me at ale.sartroom@gmail.com to let me know which e-book you want as your freebie or your friend’s email address with the e-book you would like me to send him or her. Choose an e-book from the link above. In the Subject area of your email message please type: Friendship Day Freebie.

*** If you prefer, you can message me instead when you check out in the ‘message to seller’ area via Paypal or Google Checkout.


If you tweet about this, follow me on Twitter (@Ms_Alejandra), share this post on your blog or Like Art Lessons for Kids Facebook page –let me know about it by leaving a comment here on this post.

I will randomly choose one person to receive another e-book and announce the winner on Sept. 30 – the most special day of all 🙂

I love birthdays and celebrations, don’t you?

I hope you have an amazing week of teaching moments, you lovely talented people!

E Book Giveaway!

A collage of inspiration

I was recently chatting with my friend Lucille who lives and teaches in Tokyo. She is a music teacher and I guess due to cut backs at her school, was given the ‘Art Teacher’ position on top of her other duties. She was very thankful that she could turn to my blog and e-books for inspiration. This conversation made me realize how powerful internet and blogging really is and the positive impact it can have on others all over the world. Lucille’s and all the other wonderful comments, I receive here at Art Lessons For Kids from people all over the world make this effort to blog so worth while. Knowing that my ideas can help fellow instructors in some way lessen their planning load puts a HUGE smile on my face.

We all know that back to school planning can be a little overwhelming as we are trying to get back into the groove of things, right? I am still trying to avoid it! 🙂 I also know that many of you out there including first year teachers, home school parents and anyone teaching art to young children could use a little help now. I want to make your life a little easier!

I will be giving away a copy of one my downloadable e-book  tutorials. To enter, leave a comment on this post by midnight Tuesday, August 23. Be sure to have a link to Art Lessons for Kids on your blog or website to be eligible. I will announce the winner on Wednesday, August 25. The winner will get to choose the e-book of their choice!

Have a great year of teaching and please send me some of your planning vibes so I can get started too!
