I had the pleasure of working with Julia Andrews, Isabel Perez Salazar, Lori Pratico and Cameron. Together we worked with the children and inspired them to create, here are some examples of the amazing work they did.

“Davie Event A Feast For Art Lovers”

Last week Jacklyn and I participated in an Art & Literature Event with The Fairy Tale Project  at Young At Art Children’s Museum in South Florida.  Scott Fishman from the Forum Publishing Group interviewed Jacklyn for an article that was to be published in the Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel.  It just came out a couple days ago and I wanted to share it.

Here’s Scott with Jacklyn surrounded by a couple of the paintings that were used in the Fairy Tale Project’s children’s book series I wrote… which Jacklyn beautifully and imaginatively created the artwork for!

Mainstreaming Engagement Workshop

“Mainstreaming Engagement” The Arts As A Powerful Force In Building Better Communities with Doug Borwick,  was a very powerful workshop that I attended.

Dr. Borwick is a leading advocate for community engagement in the arts. He is the author of Engaging Matters, a blog for ArtsJournal and the author/ editor of Building Communities , Not Audiences: The Future of Arts in the U.S.

The class offered by The Broward Cultural Division, was very informative. It was inspiring to hear about the shift in the art world and how we can all make a difference within our communities. The workshop provided wonderful information about new ways to approach how we can work as artists and the steps we need to take to make that change.

The Power to be the master of your own success…

Success will not necessarily come to you, you must take action and go for it. We all have the power to be the master of our own success but we have to do the work.

In this particular case, attending an amazing workshop and further educating myself in the arts is a great opportunity to feel inspired, network and give me ideas to ponder. BUT it is not enough… it is important to remember that you need to take all that information, understand the principles and put them into practice. Choose a path that is right for you, stay focused and do the work!

Thank You to the Broward Cultural Division for all the amazing workshops and all that you do to support the Arts and a very special thank you to Dr. Doug Borwick for taking the time to meet with me after the class one on one. The information you provided will be invaluable as I continue down my chosen path.
