Last Saturday July 18th, 2009 I participated in the Mill to Moon Festival up in Slater, SC. This was a community festival celebrating the history and people of Slater, SC and their efforts towards our trip to the Moon in 1969. I set up as a crafter and spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon selling my pottery, talking to the locals, and listening to Blue Grass. What a great way to spend my afternoon and talk about my art!
I have taught swim lessons before, I use to be a dance teacher, and now I have officially taught as an art teacher! When paint is involved, it is definitely a different way of teaching! I taught 2 classes of 5 and 6 year olds at Explore the Art Camp held at the Fine Arts Center. It was a wonderful experience for me because I was teaching along side a staff that taught me art when I was younger. I feel like I have come full circle and I know that I have made a good decision about going to grad school for education.
