School started up this week...I'm happy to be back. I love working with students, it's very fulfilling. I've been planning out lessons & setting up my art room. I really have so much to do this month...Oct 1 & 2 is the Jersey City Artist Studio Tour, and I'll be promoting my student's work at MS #4 on Saturday, Oct 1st. Art House Productions accepted 4 of my paintings into their art show...called "Old Skool". My portrait of Malik was accepted, so I want to plan to be there with him. When I get the details I'll post them. I am also presenting "The Power of Graffiti" at the statewide Art Educators Conference in New Brunswick on Monday, Oct 3rd. I plan to share what I'm doing in Jersey City and hopefully spread my love of all things graffiti. And finally I will be collaborating with Cheesequake Farms in Old Bridge...my students will be making a graffiti city scene based on the story "Country Mouse, City Mouse". We are obviously the "City Mouse". We are going to spray paint about 25 pumpkins, make a city backdrop & build a giant hip hop mouse. Our display will be viewed by thousands of people & school groups who go to the farms for hayrides & pumpkin picking! Rock on!
