It was great to see my ARTSEDNET friends. I attended some very good
workshops: Ann Ayer (a former Disney Teacher Honoree winner) was fabulous in her
multiple presentations. Kay Broadwater on this list is a friendly and sweet woman
whose presentation I could kick myself for missing, but heard it was
fantastic. Got to attend our very talented Ken Schwab's hands-on workshop (and spend a
little time with his adorable wife), and I'm still working on his embossing
lesson. Thanks to Woody and Harold, who reached out to me, I was able to show
my powerpoint (kinda-without the "We Are the World" music). Kept seeing Bunki
and Carolyn in the first row for the presentations- those two don't miss a
trick! Enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinners with so many of you, wonderful
Sharon, Woody, Maggie ..even coffee with the delightful Linda Woods. Always great
to see Marty from Square 1- she always reminds me that I have squares that
SHE wants! Of course, I missed Judy Nagel, my good friend, with whom I usually
trade Nana stories. If I missed mentioning anyone- sorry- it's all that comes
to mind at the moment... more later...
I think the best part about being an active person is the perk of virtually
seeing so many with whom I've shared experiences. I bumped into teachers from
my Fulbright trip to Japan- my friend Linda from Alaska and John from the
South. I just loved seeing Debi West from Georgia, y'all, and was part of her
Kaliedescope presentation, where, my napkin design lesson was a hit, I'm told.
Bumped into Katherine from my Robert Rauschenberg Power of Art weekend in
Washington (and this list)....it was like Old Home Week! Come to Boston's
Conference next year, you won't be sorry!
More on the workshops when I have time...
