CHN Family Expo in a few days...

All my time is spend getting ready for the Homeschool event (CHN Family Expo) down in Ontario, California next week. I sure would love to paint and draw but Kids Art Classroom is priority for now. The amount of "stuff" you need for one of these events is amazing. At the CHN Family Expo all I have is a table with a white table cloth and 2 chairs, electricity and internet connection and that is all....

I better get back to packing :)

Teaching art to kids is the best job on the planet... having the summer off is another wonderful plus when teaching...
I am in the middle of that summer off time right now and staying busy with Kids Art Classroom and getting ready for the CHN Family Expo in Ontario, California in August. 

I will be speaking at this event and also holding a workshop where I will be teaching one of my art lessons for kids. 

Kids Art Classroom will have a booth in the vendor hall at this event as well and I am bringing most of my family to help me out. Kids Art Classroom has turned into a small family business! My son (what would I have done without him these last few months) as the tech guru and the one writing up all my lessons and putting them online, my husband the brains behind business and marketing and my youngest daughter helping me create samples for my lessons. Our oldest daughter who just graduated college with a degree in art and business will come to help out at this event as well :)

So... what did I do??? Well, I created all the lessons, taught them over and over again to my Elementary aged students, changed them over and over again to make them next to perfect. I am doing the Facebook and Twittering for Kids Art Classroom and traveling around to homeschool events to promote us.

Kids Art Classroom has a new website

I just created a new website for Kids Art Classroom and like it so much better than the "old" one.  Come by and take a peek.

The lack of time and "artist block" makes My Art Gallery suffer.... no paintings, no nothing here lately. I do enjoy working with Kids Art Classroom but miss creating art. Sometime soon the inspiration will flow again and I will be possessed with flowers,hippos or brown paper bags.... :) you never know. For now I create in my head and hope all the art I am storing up there will be on canvas soon.
