Well...The Florida Alliance for Arts Education thinks so, anyway!
I got an email notification that I was selected to be one of the five 2017 'FAAE STAR' residency participants...and I could NOT be more excited! I applied for this residency last year and didn't get it and I was bummed, but I told myself I would apply again- and I did, and it paid off! This is a unique opportunity offered to three visual artists and two writers (who happen to also be TEACHERS!) to spend three weeks at the Hermitage Art Retreat on the west coast of Florida focusing on our craft.
Three. Weeks. Beach. Art. Writing. Swoon!
As if it couldn't get any better, I saw a familiar name in the email- my friend Kate! I met her last summer at the KCAI shibori workshop that I was selected for. We really hit it off so it was so great to see her name- neither of us knew the other was applying! More to come!
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
