I loved so many things about the LA Conference. I enjoyed meeting some of
the people on this list- Marcia Scurfield, Ken Schwab and his friend, Maggie
White, and Sharon Henneborn(although I'm sure the last name is wrong, she's
the Elementary Educator of the Year for New Jersey). We had dinner together
and it was terrific company- I've made new friends! Bunkie, I wasn't able to
see your workshop but was definitely looking for you. I missed you and many
others..oh, well, there's always next year. The most dynamic person at the
conference was definitely my new friend, Debbie West from Georgia, winner of
the Youth Art Month Award- what a bundle of positive energy! Sorry I just
couldn't get up for the 6:30 breakfast that Sax arranged. Speaking of Sax,
Judy you are the BEST. I picked up some interesting lesson plans at your
booth along with some samples of interesting new papers! O.k., everyone,
look for a paper called Folia Transparent Rainbow paper # 415189 on page 8.
When the paper is wet, it can be pressed into any form and takes that shape
when dry. Also the Folio Honeycomb Paper #406238 on page 8 looked fasinating.
Judy, do you have those lessons posted on the web?
My favorite workshops included Illusionary Printing (new printing ideas for
me), A Sampling of Elementary Art Experiences by Amy Weiner the Pacific
Elementary Art Educator 1999-2000, Art Room Movement (tips on how to arrange
an art room), The Empowered Art Teacher ( more ideas), Elementary Division
Art Educators Showcase, and Teaching Students About Abstraction by Maggie
White. If anyone wants more info on any of these workshops, please just let
me know and I will explain. Susan on Long Island
