I'm going to New Orleans for NAEA!!!


The 20215 NAEA convention is only a few days away, and on Wednesday I'll be on my way to New Orleans for the first time, to attend.  While this is my third time attending a national convention, it is the first time I'll be at a national convention not just as a workshop attendee/participant, but also as a workshop presenter!   

I am SO excited to present about a topic that I care about, that I hope will will be both enjoyed and appreciated by those who attend.  I'd love to have you there!   Here's what, when, and where I'll be presenting:

8:00 - 8:50 AM
Design Your Art Program to Say YES to the Mess!

Learn practical tips for managing a variety of messy materials in your art program as you engage students in hands-on activities, despite the challenges posed by teaching environments and schedules.

I will definitely be there, and I look forward to meeting many of my loyal readers.  Please stop by and visit!
Convention Center/Vendor Hall

Please say hello if you bump into me at the convention.  I'll be the short gal with a mass of silver hair that is dip-dyed in turquoise, and it's likely you'll find me wandering around lost somewhere in the convention center.  If you see me, please point me in the right direction!!  I'm looking forward to meeting you.  If, however, you will not be in New Orleans for the convention, don't worry, I'll be writing all about it, right here on the blog!!!
