NAEA convention


OK when I usually go to a convention I get pens, sticky pads and maybe a stress ball. But every time I turned around they gave you samples of art materials, lesson plans, or had a make and take table.

Look at al of this:


Here are a few pictures from the conventions:



Artist Wyland who creates underwater paintings of whales and more talked about how art education is a core curriculum in school. SAM_0035SAM_0036


SAM_0040Love this display about Egyptian art


SAM_0043 you know my grandfather use to be a house painter and he used roller like this to create wall art like wall paper. I still have the set of these that has the same designs from the 50’s just thought it was interesting that it is coming back into art.

SAM_0044created all by model magic!. While at the crayola exhibit I loved using the window markers they had mirror board that you looked into and traced your face to create a self portrait. I tested out the dry erase crayons which I really liked it worked just like a regular crayon but can be erased from the white board. A new item not out yet is a fabric gel marker that can be used on dark fabric.

NAEA convention cool idea

Did this little activity today at the convention. I will highly recommend this convention to any art teacher.

This activity was really fun. They had black or white gloves. The Pentec paint markers works great on the black or other color gloves. The white you can use regular permanent markers. To stand ten up they stuffed and put onto a small plastic cup.
