I also received my Maestre Certification from the FCAA. This took about 3 years for me to accomplish. It requires that you participate as a solo artist in at least 15 events, win an award at Disney, win an award with 50+ artists, plus leading a workshop and also writing about street painting.
Many of my friends in the group won awards, also (Betty Dominguez, Jamie Schwerstein, Carolyn Shultz, among others). Go to the FCAA website to see pictures of most of the winners. The high school teams impress me every year, too! Lots of talent!
