High School Art Day

High school art day is now officially over. After all the weeks of preparation, the day itself went really fast! I roped my Fiance into helping me out, which was a good thing because it was kind of a crazy day. We got to school early in the morning so we could prepare for my artist trading card activity. We got our first visitors soon after we were done setting up, and at first it was pretty mellow, but instead of people coming and going as I had expected, the ones who came earliest just stayed, so the number of people in the room kept increasing. I had Justin directing traffic, while I tried to answer questions and keep things from getting too messy. I was very pleased to have such a good turnout and I saw a lot of people making really cool trading cards. Then when the activity time slot was over, we had to clean up fast and run down to the gallery, where we had about an hour and a half to tear down the high school art show and pack everything up so the teachers could come and pick it up.

It was definitely a hectic day, but it was a lot of fun!
