RE: [teacherartexchange] Back from New Orleans

Back in Tennessee now, I have so much more energy than I did before the
convention! One of my 4th graders even mentioned in class this week that I
seemed "hyper"! I laughed--I felt hyper! I am so charged up on ideas and
enthusiasm and appreciation for my current teaching situation and the
opportunities I have had the privilege to pursue.

Woody's collagraph workshop was one of the highlights of my NAEA/New Orleans
experience. I actually did finish my printing plate (me--yes me!--who never
finishes anything in a workshop because I am so slow and tend to be more
productive when I am alone), and pulled two prints from it. Never got the
coat of white latex on my printing plate, but thanks to Woody's
encouragement, I just forged ahead without the latex "sealer" and it printed
just fine!

Woody's a fabulous teacher--I think everyone in his workshop was delighted
with what he taught, and satisfied with what they were able to accomplish in
such a short time (110 minutes!).

It was also a joy to meet Fran. :-)

I could go on and on, but family time is top priority. It was hard being
away for so long...the only downside to the NAEA convention experience.
