The Galveston sky stayed blue for TAEA's 50th anniversary and annual conference held at Moody Gardens. I got to experience the island first hand while staying with good friends who drove this daisy to find the best shrimp po'boy, visit historical architecture dating back to the 1800's, and freak me out with haunted hotspots. I took well over a thousand pictures of the colorful street scene, artist led workshops including print maker Daryl Howard and local Galveston artist Rene Wiley, vendor exhibits, boutiques on the Strand, and studio art by students at Galveston College. That's why this week I'll be breaking up my take on this post by subject matter, otherwise we'd both be here for days. Check back daily for more on what when on (well, at least where I was) at this years TAEA conference.

I love twists on old favorites and so does Texas art teacher Karin Weindorff, whose fantasy inspired sketchbook ideas jumped off the pages of her protected brain book. These should be on every art students list of things to do before embarking on that serious project.
