Phoenix Festival of the Arts this weekend was a great success for us. We nearly doubled our sales from last year in spite of the rain on Saturday. All three days I had at least two members working it with me, Anthony, Roxie, and Jessica. They were all good at speaking to clients, writing up the paperwork for credit card sales and receipts for cash sales, taking in money, and giving change. They also learned how to set up and tear down a show, and display art. Each one had a great time and enjoyed all they learned. We presented our greeting cards for the first time and they sold well. The pet portraits were a big hit and I am sure will become a continuous source of revenue to help support our wonderful art program. I am proud of my students for the professional way they conducted themselves with clients, and their willingness to jump in do the work. How exciting…….this is only the beginning!
