Highlights of the convention


Saturday, April 25, 2009

I stayed at an all-suite hotel, and was upgraded to a two bedroom suite - yup, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a central living/dining/kitchen, and 3 TVs, all to myself.

Best giveaway - the Vincent van Gogh action figure, complete with moving arms and legs, an easel, a paintbox, pallette, and brush. My students loved it! I love how silly it is!

Tons of free samples for my students to try - air-dry clays, deluxe construction paper, all kinds of markers and colored pencils and pens and paint samples. We'll have a few product assessment days.

I attended probably 35 sessions, and only one wasn't helpful and productive.

I chatted with Judy Chicago, who discussed her new curriculum for "The Dinner Party," and remembered me from working on a few projects with her for "The Birth Project."

Time with my niece - both with her little 5 yr old boy and her husband, and just the two of us.

Networking with art teachers from all over the world.

It was great!!!!!!!
