YACA Workshop

I put my "teaching shoes" back on today.  I spent the day at the YACA convention (Youth Art Council of America).When I was a teacher,
I took my students to this convention.
 It is a wonderful organization.  At the convention, the students
compete in an art show, take workshops, complete art projects,
attend a banquet and a dance, and have lots of fun.
Today, I taught them to do colored pencil on canvas, using the
Gamsol solvent.They caught on very quickly, and had some success
with it.  It was a fun day for me, away from the gallery,
getting to spend time with young people with a passion for art, 

and a desire to learn.
