There were only a few of us, but we had fun! We ate teeny tiny pizzas, chased each other with super soakers, sold some stuff (thanks to our great sales woman Ebonee Pitman), and the highlight, spray painting with Mustart. You rock Ivan!
Saturday, June 23rd, our final art show for the year in Jersey City. We will be selling the rest of our products as well as spray painting a mural with Mr. Mustart, graffiti artist. Come check us out, support us. All students welcome to participate.
Exact location: Provost Street between 2nd Street & Bay Street AND First Street, between 2nd Street and Warren Street.
Everyone’s favorite host, Dancin’ Tony, will emcee live music all day, from the likes of Devi, The Ray Bally Band, Microcosms, the Audiobodies and many more. Over 75 of the finest crafters the craft world has to offer (such as: Rockstar Revolution, La Muse Kalliope, Oceanne, the Jersey City Craft Mafia, FilthyFarmGirlNYC, Misty Glassworks, Locust Point Furnishings, InstigatorZine, truly psychic readings by Intuitive Goddess, henna and face painting by Henna by Colleen) will be there with bells on.

Other spinning plates include: A pop-up art mural teaming up local artists with kids from the Jersey City Urban Arts Program, a Puppy Fashion show by Fierce Pet Fashion & Liberty Humane Society, and a comedy tent featuring 25 comics (hosted by Craig Mahoney).
Also, in one corner, WFMU’s dj’s will be spinning and giving away giveaways (yay giveaways! Who doesn’t love giveaways?!?).
Speaking of which: The first 100 attendees will receive fun-filled swag bags!
The 4th Annual Blowout Bash will go down in history as the biggest one to date for Not Yo Mama’s! During this year’s Annual Blowout Bash, we’ll be donating a portion of our proceeds to the Liberty Humane Society.
Thank you to all who came out to support! We raised enough $$ to purchase some spray paint for next week classes! Super big thank you to Bright Street's principal, Ms Braswell & LA teacher, Ms Brown for coming out today. Also to Ms Ann Marley, Arts Supervisor with JCPS. And super big thanks to John from Hudson Art Supply for giving us this opportunity.
Look for us again on June 23rd with Not Yo Mama's Craft Fair....we'll be doing a pop up mural with graff artist, Mustart
I love art and can't imagine my life without it! I've been working with students in Jersey City for the past 13 yrs~ doing what I love. My students inspire me, and I hope I return the inspiration back. ~Ms. Marino
