I had a wonderful time at NAEA. I had not been to a national for over 10
years so it all seemed exciting and inspirational to me. I loved getting to
know some of you artsednetters: Bunki, Mary, Maggie and of course Judy Nagel
Thanks Judy! I wish I had had more time to attend the breakfast etc., but
will plan that for next year. A big part of the conference for me was
meeting and sharing a hotel room with a former collegaue; as well as
reconnecting with someone I had taught with twenty years ago. I think it's
all about connecting, sharing and networking with other art teachers. I
love that aspect of a national convention. Of course, the spectacular
California sunshine didn't hurt either. As far as my favorite workshop, I
would have to say the one by Ken Vieth on visual problem solving for
secondary students was outstanding. He was so inspirational. My friend and
I bought his book " From the Ordinary to the Extraordinary" as soon as the
Exhibitor's Hall opened the next morning. They sold out right away but we
had ours for Ken to sign. I highly recommend that you secondary teachers
take a look at this book.
The Getty reception was spectacular: the views, the gardens, the
architecture. I could go on and on. It was a little bit of heaven last
Monday afternoon. Bunki, we didn't get back til 5:45 so I'm sorry I missed
your workshop. I hope it went well.
Here's to NYC in 2001! Hope you all have a good re-entry,
