MAEA Spring Conference

I had a wonderful time at Brunswick High School yesterday. I attended the Maine Art Educator's Association Spring Conference. The title was 'Cure for the Common Core' - always a lighthearted and clever group of educators! Here are a couple of pictures from the workshop I taught on needle felting. My 'students' made butterflies and penguins.

Last night the MAEA group headed over to the Inn at Brunswick Station for an award ceremony. I received recognition for becoming a National Board Certified Teacher in Art for Early and Middle Childhood. I was given this great ceramic box - I love it. Mr. Mousey is getting in the picture to say that I will be teaching needle felting mice at PortFiber the next two Saturdays. Check out PortFiber's website to join the class!
