Upcoming Events

Happy Sunday everyone!

As all of you know, the Tate Street Festival is fast approaching. We're now looking for volunteers for the booth we'll be setting up on Tate Street. I have attached a schedule thus far of people who are going to be there and what times. We're going to be setting up not later than 10/1030 and be there until 6pm.

Ideally, we would like to have 4 people for each shift. We're looking to have 2-hour increment slots (10am-12pm, 12pm-2pm, 2pm-4pm, 4pm-6pm) You can also volunteer for an hour if that's all you've got.

This is a great way to meet new people and earn bonus points in the art department. Even if you're not a member of the NAEA yet, but you'd like to contribute, we'd love for you to be there. Let me or any of the officers know if you'd like to sign up, via e-mail or facebook, or in person if you have the opportunity.

We're going to hold another set of meetings this week before the festival. Thursday Sept. 23 from 12-2pm and Friday Sept. 24 from 1pm-4pm in the art education room.

ALSO: There's an additional chance to volunteer your time coming up. The NAEA will be offering their services to a mural project at West Guilford Highschool. We'll be meeting with a teacher from the school on Thursday and will let everyone know when it'll be starting.

Thanks so much!

NAEA meeting this Friday!

I'm not sure who, these days, would check the blog before they check their own facebooks, but for those of you who would, this is a friendly reminder!

This Friday, September 17th, we'll be meeting in room 206 of the Studio Arts building at 2:30pm. Officers will be meeting 30 minutes prior to deliberate.
Bring any donations and all kinds of awesome ideas to share with everyone so we can tackle tasks before the big day, NEXT SATURDAY!

If you have any questions, be sure to email us!

Latest updates for the UNCG NAEA!

The year's starting full-swing and full-force, with a new chapter in the NAEA.

New officers have been elected for the year, and are as follows:
Jessica Sanford - President
Austin Smith - Vice-President
Becky Manning Hiatt - Secretary
Nikki and Tiffany - Publicity Agents

We hope that we'll have tons of new members this year to share in on the fun. If you're on the fence of whether or not you should join, PLEASE come out to the meeting. You can get a taste of what we're all about and hopefully that'll help you decide.

Some very important events/dates everyone should be aware of:
September 25 is the official day we will set up a booth at the Tate Street Festival to try and raise money for our organization. The UNCG homecoming is held Sep. 20-26, which is when we'll be there.

Art donations for the festival, from anyone, would be AMAZING! Donations include crafts and supplies such as stuffed creatures, pins, magnets, canvas art, most craft-ish items you can think of and paints, clay, cloth, anything to make something of. Donations should be delivered to room 206 in the Art building, but if you can't get there, PLEASE let us know, and we'll be happy to arrange for it to be picked up by one of our members. Jessica is willing to take donations as well, just let us know if you need her phone #.

Of course we realize that we all have pretty hectic schedules this time of year, but please know everyone is more than welcome to work on things on their own time. Halloween crafts are a great idea this time of year, and if anyone has any more ideas on what to make, let us know at the meeting.

We will also be meeting:  (which are all Fridays at 2:30 - 3:30)
September 17
October 15
November 19

Officer meetings are held 2-2:30 (before chapter meetings)

Flyers will be posted in the Gatewood building and around Tate Street. Please tell your friends and family about the festival. We'd like to have as many people come by as possible!

The NAEA will be hosting a seminar in November, in what will probably be 2 sections/days. One day for lecture and the second, consecutive day for hands-on activities. Dates are to be determined. More than likely a Wednesday.

Jessica and Tiffany started off the year with a warm-up round at Maria's, where we dined on delicious Korean sustenance, provided by Maria and her family and friends. We went over some details of NAEA technicalities with Kara Seaford. It was a short visit, but a nice, informal introduction.
