Wow... Have I been busy! It has been quite some time since I have been on here, but now that there are only three more days left of school, I can start my regular blogging again.
As an update on job front, my art position at my two elementary schools did get cut, so I have been on the Art teaching job hunt. I have applied for several, but teaching jobs in Indiana are becoming few because of the lack of funding everywhere. For now, I started a blog for private art lessons, Art Parties, and workshops. It is very rough right now, but it will help a little while I am looking for a job. Please send good thoughts my way if you can.... it is sure hard to be a teacher these days! http://art2theextremeparty.blogspot.com/
Since I wrote last, I have participated in two craft/art fairs that were very successful. The first was the Bloomington Handmade Market, a group of Indiana Etsy members of the INCrowd team. I always enjoy selling and buying in Bloomington, IN because it is such a great community of artists, shops, and restaurants.
The Broad Ripple Art Fair sponsored by the Indianapolis Art Center was also last weekend. This art fair is one of the largest and most well-known in Indiana. This was my first time selling there as a student and this was my best show yet! I also ran into a fellow vendor friend, The Binding Bee, who had a successful time as an outdoor vendor as well.
At the show, I bought some awesome things from this AMAZING teen artist Gregory Dugdale. He was selling his jewelry, greeting cards, art, and tie-dye t-shirts like crazy. I bought some earrings and my new favorite tie-dye shirt from him for a great price. He has even sold tie-dye shirts to Rupert from Survivor! I do not think he has a website, but you can contact him at Effie2@aol.com.
I am doing an outdoor show/open house next week in Broad Ripple with a few ladies that should be awesome!
