2017, the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce will celebrate its 55th year of the Delray Affair.

The Delray Affair is the largest arts & craft festival in the Southeast United States. The event takes place along the palm tree lined downtown streets of Delray Beach and stretches 12 city blocks from the Intracoastal to NW 2nd Avenue. The Delray Affair has received numerous awards for its ‘eclectic’ mixture of fine art, great crafts and funky products from around the world. Last year, artists and crafters from 30 states and twelve countries exhibited at the Delray Affair.

The upcoming event takes place April 7-9, 2017 and we expect record crowds again (if that’s possible)! Visit the Delray Affair as you stroll the streets of The Most Fun Small Town in US!

 

Art Director for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami -Dade entitled the Music and Art Challenge

  During the spring of 2017, as MAC’s Art Director, I worked at four Miami-Dade Boys and Girls Clubs locations each with a team of staff and other professionals. I began by introducing 120 elementary and middle school children the techniques of drawing and then watercolor, next guiding them to create and illustrate their stories with paintings that told their stories. The children enjoyed hands-on-experience working with 140 lb. D’arches French watercolor paper and watercolor paints of seven colors personally chosen by me to introduce them to the magic of color. They learned how to mix colors and express their feelings and visions through art. The children were amazing to watch as they discovered these expressions.

The children’s paintings and stories were given to a pre-selected panel of judges at Miami’s New World School of the Arts, led by its School of Music Dean, Daniel Andai, Ph.D., for inspiration and judging. As I read each of the10 stories aloud, it was as if every word I said would make the colors on the paintings more vibrant and vivid until each story came to life before the judge’s eyes.

The panel of judges chose five winning paintings and stories. These winners will be given to a group of student and faculty composers who will create an original musical composition for each. The World Premiere compositions of each of the five winners will commence at the New World Schoolof the Arts School of Music 2017 Graduation Ceremony. Every emerging student artist, their families and friends will be able to enjoy the musical compositions, the paintings and stories that inspired each creation.


Sincerely,
