I spent a wonderful few days at Galveston, TX where the annual TAEA conference was held. I went to several workshops where art educators shared their tried and true lessons. There's nothing like surrounding yourself with "like minds" and seeing how other art programs from around the state differ from your own. I always return rejuvinated and excited to teach. I have so many ideas thanks to the conference. This year an artisans market was held so art educators could sell their wares. I decided to sell my jewelry. I didn't think I would sell much since it was only for two and a half hours. Boy, was I wrong! I sold out in less time than that. What I enjoyed most was meating all of the wonderful people that stopped by my table.
I posted pictures of the view from my window and a few shots that I took when I went out for some shopping. If you are ever in Galveston you don't want to miss some of the wonderful antique shops. I now have to write a power point presentation that I will be presenting tomorrow to area art educators based on "Creative Background Techniques". After the great time I had I feel up to the challenge. I hope you had a great weekend.
