It sounds like your life full of amazing and interesting stories. Is there one that was more impactful or stands out as a life changer? We’d love to hear it!
Actually, I have a book coming out soon. It’s in the final editing stages. Some big names in the art and education worlds (in addition to my infamous clientele) are attached to it too, have read it and provided me with some amazing blurbs for the cover. It’s called “DUAL LIVES: From the Streets to the Studio”. Lots of those impactful life-changing stories will be embedded in there. For me, every year there’s a new one. Our son’s story has been the one keeping me most occupied though as of late.
What are you hoping to get out of this month’s challenge? And what are you hoping the community will get out of it?
I hope my #31nights challenge inspires others to try it. It’s not for the faint of heart, but definitely is a game changer, and for many, at keynotes and workshops I’ve given on it across the country will be quick to attest on my behalf – it can become something truly life changing! Use the hashtag and upload yours to Instagram, twitter, and facebook and see yours trending nationwide!
As we close up this interview, what would you like to share with the community that we haven’t asked you?
You’re probably the first interview I’ve ever done that hasn’t asked me about my close relationship with John and Peter Gotti. But it’s probably for the best… I’ll just let your community enjoy seeing the pictures of us together doing painting unveilings, book signings and out and about making great memories together on my facebook page at http://facebook.com/mbellartlive and my twitter feed. Soon, everyone will be able to read all about it in my upcoming book about my life and art, in and out of the studio. It’s a great read that gives you everything an aspiring artist or teacher should know.
And I give it to you straight. No “ed-speak”. Just calling it how I’ve seen it, and as someone who has also produced 7 back-to-back national award winners, is a 3X national teacher of the year who has given talks for the USDE and across the country as a former Maryland State Teacher of the Year, believe me when I tell you…I’ve seen it all! Please feel free to view my art though through my Official Website, where 31 nights CD’s are also available for purchase online at http://mbellart.com Thank you for having me. You two are THE BEST!!!
Michael, thank you for taking the time to share your voice, thoughts, and stories with us! We are really looking forward to spending this month being creative with you!
Wishing you Creativity,
Laura and Matt
