Happy Arts Education Advocacy Month, Youth Art Month and Music in Our
In celebration, I am launching the promised arts education blog which
I am calling "MEARTSED" Blog. You will find included in the blog all
of the same information as the newsletter had, plus more.
The blog link:
I hope you will bookmark the link and check it daily. Every week or
two I plan to send an email to the list serve to let you know the
titles of the latest blog posts.
To help you get to know the blog:
When you go to meartsed blog you will see in the large/main section
the posts on different topics. At the bottom of each post you will
see "comments". If you click on comments it will take you to a place
where you can post your comment. I am hoping you will respond so we
can make this a "conversation" so you can share your knowledge and
On the right side of the page you see:
1) my contact information
2) the purpose of the blog
3) Pages which includes
* Professional Development Opportunities
* Student Opportunities
* Upcoming Events
4) Blogroll - this is a section that has arts educators blogs - click
on any of them and go directly to the blogs
You can tell which ones are a link to information or to somewhere else
by putting your curser over it and you will see a pointing finger.
For example, if you put it on the web address for the arts ed webpages
at the Department of Education (under my contact info), you can click
and go directly to those pages.
I hope you will find the blog filled with useful information and a
place where you can get some "food for thought".
If you have information that you want others to know about (as in the
past), please send the info along and I will include it.
One more thing, it is my responsibility to monitor comments, they will
not be automatically posted. So, if I feel a comment is inappropriate
I will not post it.
PLEASE let me know what you think of the meartsed blog that I have
created for all 861 of you on the list serve. And, if you know others
who would like to receive the blog please email me with their contact
I look forward to reading your comments on the blog and having you
join the conversation!
Make it a great day,
