National Association of Independent Artists
Begun in 1995, the National Association of Independent Artists (NAIA) is a membership-based 501c6 nonprofit trade organization that serves to enhance the economic well-being of people who exhibit their artwork at quality outdoor and indoor art and/or fine craft shows, encourage creative expression and artistic excellence, and expand public awareness, appreciation and acquisition of fine art and fine craft. Further, the organization serves as an advocate for artists. It is committed, by positive and cooperative means, to promote improvement throughout the industry. The NAIA has become the artists' collective and most effective voice as it continues to grow and gain recognition. The organization is led by a dedicated volunteer board of directors, volunteers and advocates.
Tulip does it again with a new face painting kit. While I can't get my favourite paints (Palmer) in the supplies I need, we, The Balloonatics will test this new kit and see how kid friendly it will be. We will test toxicity, staining, melding of colours, creating special effects, and just how many faces we can paint with one kit. Tulip is wonderful in its other many many products and I highly recommend them. We will post our findings as soon as we test them out.
