Hi, my name is Ben Putnam and I make art and teach art in south western New Hampshire. I also like really good words, philosophy, walking and quiet. I am beginning this blog at summers end 2015. I’m committing to keeping up with this exercise through the school year; with any luck I will love it and be setting a new goal for myself ten months from now. As you can see from the home page my intention is to use this site as a collection house for all aspects of my life not just my teaching life although it is my teaching that has inspired me to take on this project. I hope you find things you enjoy looking at and reading here. Not that any of us need another reason to be looking at a screen but I do hope I can create some moments of “Crap! Where did the last hour and a half go!”.
