Cynthia and I spent the weekend at Quartz Mountain, Oklahoma, teaching a program on Writing for Children and Teens for the Oklahoma Fall Arts Institute. It was a lot of fun (and a lot of work :-)).

We had about twenty-five participants, which was a bit large, but manageable. Everyone was enthusiastic about their writing and were very creative when it came to the writing exercises. Days began at about 8 AM, went through to about 5:30 -- then we had dinner and then instructor presentations until about 9 PM.
Somewhat uniquely for us were the programs running in parallel -- (NOTE: Link is to a PDF file) monotype printing, ballroom dance, theatre production, choral singing, arts integration. It was refreshing to be around other artists, and particularly the performing artists, in the bar at the end of the day. :-).

We're planning a very quiet thanksgiving -- it was the last of three weekends out of town for us -- the previous weekend we were at Star Lit up in Dallas, which Cyn blogs about here; the weekend before that, we went to Houston for the TSRA Awards.
