Day Two

I like to call this the Art day. We got to see several artists that day. We started off seeing Dan Dunn. He is an artist that plays music and paints right there in front of you. It was pretty cool! You can find out more about his stuff at this website: http://www.paintjam.com/.

The crazy thing is several months before my mom had sent us a video of him painting, so it was kind of cool actually seeing him in person. It was very enjoyable.

After that we went to the vendor exhibits. It was basically a trade show for art teachers. All sorts of different art vendors were showing the art teachers the latest and greatest products in the industry. It was awesome...especially since there were so many free samples! Addison fell asleep while we were there.

That afternoon we got to see Faith Ringgold talk. (You can find more of her stuff here http://www.faithringgold.com/). We got to see Her "Who's Afraid of Aunt Jemima" last year at the Utah Museum of Art. She used to be an art teacher too. It was neat seeing her.

It was a cool day.
