December! I can hardly believe it.

 
In this age of cell phones, does anyone wear a watch anymore? I never did. I was conditioned to an awareness of the time by years of teaching in a classroom. My days were once regimented into 45 minute segments. But now I am planning way ahead for September 2017 even though it seems we just celebrated Souvenirs of Summer 2016. I don’t even know what day it is anymore.
 
Maybe everyone is done shopping for the holidays?
 
Just in case you are still looking, I wanted to send a quick message to parents about art supplies for kids if I haven’t already told y’all in person. My best advice is “less is more”. Avoid the large kits full of everything. Opt for a smaller package of one medium in a higher quality. Think nice drawing pencils or one set of Expressionist pastels or Prismacolors. Buy red, yellow, blue, and white paints instead of a rainbow of cheaper prepackaged paints. The kids know how to make a million colors from these few. The quality of the larger sets are often compromised by volume and in the long run are frustrating to kids more so than inspiring. "How to draw" books rarely break stuff down into manageable parts.  So I always suggest books on the lives of the artists. These are my favorites: http://www.mikevenezia.com/artists/
 
And for the adults, art is always in fashion, appreciates in value, and is a fabulous gift.
 
Fabulon is having a blast with the Maker’s Markets. We met some new people and had great press. Thanks to Christophe's Chocolates and their new West Ashley store for coming out last Saturday.
 
The next and last event is Saturday, December 10th from 12-4pm. There should be 2 new artist vendors. The food truck features the latest trend these days: Blackanese: soul and Asian fusion.
Hope you can make it!
 
Ps: Don’t forget about I Live Here photography show reception on Friday, December 9th from 5-8pm. The photographs are so beautiful!
