A few weeks ago, my colleagues began planning their trip to the NAEA conference. Now, I have never been to this conference, but I hear it's amazing! For those of you who are not art teachers, this is basically a crazy weekend conference packed with art educators across the nation. Two of my colleagues will be presenting this year and I unfortunately am unable to participate (due to my husband being across the world on business that same week).
However, I really wanted to send a piece of me to the conference. I especially think (and hope) that I have the ideal audience at this conference in connection with the blog! I saw a friend's business cards a few years ago that she purchased from Moo.com and LOVED them! They have great design options, you can design them yourself even, and you can a different image for each card if you want (which I do)! I spent a little time designing the cards, uploading photos, and committing to the slightly hefty price tag. In my opinion, they are very much worth it! Take a look at the PILE I have in this photo. One colleague related them to Artist Trading Cards since there is a different art project on each card. The card stock is quite heavy, and the sheen is a satin. It's almost hard to pass them out!
|This pile is an example of the "backs" of the cards.|
If you will be at the NAEA conference this year, keep an eye out for a few tables that will have my card, or my colleagues from Kenwood Academy who will have a stash on them as well.
