Ok, when it rains it pours around here. I'm not only having issues with my hours for next year, and a spring cold, but the art show I blogged about several weeks ago, and that I have been having the kids make art for, was just canceled! I just got a call from my contact at the event and they are canceling it because the space they were going to hold the event is flaking out. This does not bode well for me. I have been pushing the 5th-8th graders through the most advanced projects I have ever given them for this art show. For many of them the only thing motivating them to push through the challenge was the idea of having their art on display outside of the school. This is going to cause some major trust issues with a lot of them. Working with the population of students I work with...you don't just have them bust their buts on something and then say...opps sorry! There is only one solution as I see it. I need to find a new venue to show their work and I need to to it fast!
On this pluse side I have a steller collection of Oregon bird colored pencial and watercolor renderings and oregon native plant watercolors framed with french curve desgins.
