Yippee! Two workshops at NAEA!

Hey, readers - I want to share some super-awesome fabulous news with you!  I submitted workshop proposals for the NAEA (National Art Ed Assoc) Convention that will be held in NYC this coming March, and a couple of days ago I received notification that they were BOTH approved!!!  There was just a 35% acceptance rate, so I'm exceptionally proud to have been approved for two out of two!
If you are going to the convention, here's what I'm presenting:
The Amazing Flexagon: Magic with Art and Math is a 2-hour ticketed hands-on workshop. 

Sink Your Teeth into Toothpaste Batik! is a 30 minute workshop, which included a hands-on demonstration.
These are both topics I've written about repeatedly here on the blog.  
 And both are topics/processes that I absolutely LOVE to share about.
 I'd love to see you there in NYC this March!


  1. Lucky participants! Love those batik colors!!

  2. Congrats Phyl! Both Great workshops!

  3. Congrats on being picked! Was wondering if there was anything that could be subbed for the lotion with Aloe? I am violently allergic to Aloe Vera so it would make this difficult but I LOVE the idea of the project and the low cost makes it even more intriguing.

    1. I don't think there is any reason it has to be aloe. The lotion just makes the toothpaste flow smoothly. Try some nice creamy lotion and see! Bu the way, some hair gels will also make a good resist, if you find one that hardens nicely but also flows to draw your lines with!

  4. Way to go Phyl! Congratulations.
