Notice about the breakfast came too late for me as well. I ended up
staying at the Hilton Garden Inn across the street from the Convention
Center-the rate was slightly lower and I got breakfast included and a
shuttle to the train. The train to the airport was direct and small
money. My school system gave me release time but I needed to cover all
my costs, so looked for the thriftiest way to do it.
I ran out of hand-outs to my presentation called Mandala Mosaics, (I
arrived with 60 copies) and said I would post them on the wiki site,
but was never able to figure out how to do that. If anyone missed out,
I will email it to them.
The NAEA Convention was truly wonderful, and I enjoyed my first visit
to Minneapolis as well. I spent an entire day at the Walker and the
Sculpture Park and attened a workshop offsite at the MN Book Arts
center. Those excursions will lead to some new lesson plans. The
presentations I attended were wonderful. I wish I had met more of you
on the list. I'd love to hear what you did and saw in MN.
