NBPTS and felting at MAEA Spring Conference

Wet Felting: My first 2 vessels.... it's all about color folks...
2 entries are submitted for National Board - wahoo! 1 entry to go and 6 tests.
I think I can, I think I can...
The Maine Art Educators Association spring conference at UMO was great. The keynote speaker was Dr. Kerry Freedman, author of: Teaching Visual Culture:  http://www.art.niu.edu/Art-Design-Education-Faculty/Kerry-Freedman.html.
At the conference I took a wonderful workshop entitled: Explorations in Felt: Small Vessels. I have noodled around a bit with needle felting. This workshop was wet felting, over mason jars. Our teacher: Jodi Clayton of One Lupine  http://www.onelupine.com/ was a wonderful teacher. This is my kind of conference - provocative information for the mind and a hands on creative experience.
