Today's Art Room Report....

Day 37, 38, 39 and 40
My Virginia Art Educators Trip to Roanoke, Virginia!
I love VAEA conference!!!

Big Dog helping hubby get ready for our Totem Pole workshop at VAEA

The floor of our hotel room the night before our totem pole workshop! Scary!

Finally the day we have been waiting for...I chance to share our totem pole project with fellow teachers...

Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves!

There were many different animals.

Alyssa's totally awesome fox! 

I thought it would be a great idea to dump out all the clay tools on the
floor so everyone could get to them easier....I do not always think everything through! The clay dust was everywhere!

Right as the class was about to end and we needed water to wrap the clay pieces in...the City of Roanoke has a water main break and all the water was shut off for hours! 
We had a spray bottle everyone used to wet down their towels but I have do idea what they did for the bathroom breaks....?

My first workshop was Mark Clines talk about his life and work. Very inspiring! You can check out his work at...

Mark's ...Foamhenge in Natural Bridge, Virginia

Fiberglass work by Mark Cline

Mark gave us all a gift and just wanted everyone to be silly for a few moments...

So we all stood up and blew up our whoopie cushions and....

then sat down...It was great fun!

No we did not have pizza for lunch...the supplies for our Transfer workshop came in that box. 
After the workshop walking around with the bag everyone was asking me where I got pizza. I was very, very popular for about 10 mins. 

Saw this on a tee-shirt...Love it!

The fantastic Prince William County group out to dinner.

The Elementary Division Meeting. We were asked to create collage landscapes out of scrapbook paper. So fun!

My Simple and Easy Walk up workshop in the hall...Way to much fun!

Totally awesome place. If you are ever in Roanoke, Virginia you have to stop by for a visit.

We took the back way home and made it just in time to go to my sleep study test at the hospital. The nurse asked me if I had a normal day....!!!
