It’s GOTTA be Happy Hour Somewhere! Destination Paint Party 002

Well, THIS is the week it goes down! Another unique, multi-sensory, destination painting event! This time it’s at the lovely Westport Rivers Vineyard and Winery. Just driving into Westport to scout this location was soothing. As I drove down the dirt path I was greeted by the GORGEOUS landscaping and KNEW this location was right for this event! I was able to adjust the price AND time for this paint party lower than my last event, making it more affordable. This party is ONLY $40, and the price includes a glass of bubbly, art instruction and light refreshments. Additional beverages may be purchased on the premises for continued enjoyment of libations. Feel Free to bring a picnic basket and blankets too! FOR TICKETS… (Limited seating) Please SHARE and tell some friends about this unique, multi-sensory event!

As much as I write about things around the City and of all the hustling I get done in the City, working with the Home Schooling community has ALWAYS been some of the MOST rewarding! From my FIRST session to the latest, it’s given me a glimpse of what the future of education will be, and what I can do to help move that vision along!

EforAll’s 2016 Summer Accelerator Program – Mentor Matching Magic

The fortune of being in the 2016 SUMMER ACCELERATOR Program will be established in this first paragraph. There was NO application fee (Free to apply). NO financed payments for THREE top notch mentors (Free guidance, advice & support). The intensive workshops twice a week (Free as a Jay bird). The word “free” began to bother me the more it popped up in my mind, because its connotation doesn’t give ANY value. I felt lucky before, but now I realized the information and tailored attention I’m being given in this program is PRICELESS!!!

There are SO MANY personal correlations and relationships that got me interested. I REEEALLY wanted in once I saw how it sharpened and polished people I considered sharp and polished. The MAIN draw is the custom mentoring from SUCCESSFUL PROFESSIONALS who are choosing to give their time and expertise to help me get the focus and edge I need to be a successful entrepreneur. Many of these mentors are locals, which for my business make a BIG DIFFERENCE!

The Creative Oasis: Youth Art Project MAKES IT HAPPEN!!! Part I

I consider serving my community as an obligation for making a living here. It’s doing my part to contribute to the sustainability of the community AND conservation of the culture.

Whatever sings to you DO IT…TODAY!!! I will confess I had NO IDEA what I was doing, but I was compelled and for the FIRST TIME, I REEEEEALLY followed through with a BIG project of my own AND had measurable success. The reward was in the service to the underprivileged and at-risk youth of New Bedford, BUT also in creating a KICK-ASS team of artists and young people. There was PLENTY of joy in seeing what the CREATIVE OASIS: YOUTH ARTS PROJECT meant to those who needed it!

ALL said and done…I’M HAPPY!!! The turn out was GREAT, so far some of Nik Ukleja and Suzanna Blake’s artwork sold which is REALLY the goal of these exhibitions! I enjoy showcasing art through curating and seeing the FRESH pieces, but uniting appreciation and support for an artist’s work is a GREAT FEELING!!! There were MANY familiar faces but I LOVE seeing NEW ones, ESPECIALLY those I invite!

Magisto and Social Media

I feel like the first person who carved and rolled a wheel down a hill, and then disappear into the forest. I know I can do it again…but how can I spin this into something BIGGER? I have a video on Magisto that RAPIDLY hit what I guess you could call mildly viral status in a few short days! To watch the exponential climb of numbers, just over a nights sleep was/is AMAZING!!! The BEST part is that all the views, shares and likes were for something I LOVE doing! The workshop in December with the youth from Southcoast Health’s R.A.P.P.P.  Program* was based on the art of giving as well as creating the art. It was the gift that keeps on giving! As of today it’s at 4,350 views!

Hey, this might be my last post for the year, huh!?! HAPPY HOLIDAYS Y’ALL!!! I wish I could hug all of ya’! As 2016 and my second favorite holiday (NEW YEAR’S DAY) approach I realize it’s a wrap, Folks! Yet another year we get to claim as lived through, and it treated me well! I’ve covered a LOT of ground, learned a LOT, painted on my fair share of canvas, and took my public involvement up several notches. I have HUGE plans and announcements opening up the year and I have a TON to sort out and plan. BUT, I also make it a habit to look at old work to gain perspective from past years. So, for the Resolutions being considered, I have whipped up the last installment of the ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT SERIES based in Value!
