#iTOMB Hits the Jersey Shore

This week sees us off to the Jersey Shore for the New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival at Ocean County College - Three days of dance, art, music, theatre, photos, film and fun. Last summer we did Seton Hall University, so it now looks like we spend our summers in Jersey:) Maybe I'll head over to Asbury Park this year and see if I can find The Boss:)


The one thing I wish I could change about these events is that I'd love to see the other presenters activities and do a bit of learning too:) But as it is, we're booked solid for the whole time so I'll miss Modern Dance, Musical Theatre, Chinese Brush Strokes, Film and Video and what sounds to be a great seminar on getting a job in the creative arts.

Take a look at the programs here and contact me to discuss adding a participatory art element to your educational activities this summer or in the fall semester.

Our thanks to Mark Wilson, Artistic Director at Ocean County College and Tony Petito, Executive and Artistic Director at the Arts and Education Center in Matawan, New Jersey.

Clarion High School Art @ #iThinkOutsideMyBox on the High Line in New York City


#iThinkOutsideMyBox was pleased to host the Clarion High School (Clarion, PA) Spring arts tour that included The Met, The Whitney, The High Line and an Off-Broadway show on 28 April. Good company, we thought.

Organizer Ray Jones had met me last fall and asked me early this year about bringing a group of 30+ in for a flash painting session (one hour) in the spring and the date was set.

The student's nearly twenty four-hour bus trip and city tour was a whirlwind event and not one they'll soon forget. Our thanks to Ray for putting it all together.

Our location on the High Line can handle up to 50 people seated and painting time for everyone:) Or we come to you: From June 1-3 we'll be traveling to Orange County New Jersey for the three-day New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival. For group events, contact David by email.
