TAEA Conference

I went to the TAEA (Texas Art Education Association) Conference this past weekend in Austin, TX. with several other art educators. It was an amazing conference with great workshops. I have posted two of the lessons in my other blog (the painted apple), I'd rather share a few more personal images here.

Aside from the great workshops the fact that I was in my element, surrounded by sooooo many other artists and educators made the trip so special. I roomed with three other friends in the hotel and we spent some evenings drawing in our sketchbooks and sharing lessons that we had learned at the workshops. It was a fun art packed weekend that will hopefully help push me through the rest of the year.

San Antonio

I took a two day trip to San Antonio to see my son perform in the Alamodome with his high school band. It was an amazing experience to see him perform, I had more than one tear in my eye.

The day before his performance we took a walk around the convention center and happened upon a performance honoring Dia de los Muertos. It was such a great performance with music, dancing and acting. I took a few pictures, but it was getting late and only a few turned out ok.
