- This month, I was accepted into the Kentucky Arts Council Teaching Artist Directory! The directory is a roster of adjudicated Kentucky artists who produce high quality artistic work and have both the skills and competencies needed to collaborate with teachers and students in designing and implementing arts education programs. The directory serves as a resource for schools of all levels as well as a variety of organizations who may want to employ qualified teaching artists. Stay tuned for ways your school or organization can take advantage of this great opportunity!
- You may notice my NEW ironweed-inspired LOGOS, carefully designed by Anna LeMay to reflect my style & story. If your creative work needs branding, an event poster, logo or other promotional image, I encourage you to work with Anna! Check out her work and contact her today: Anna LeMay Creative.
Best wishes to you and yours.
