I hope you are having a wonderful winter vacation (those of you who are in the middle of your winter break). The weather was so mild this weekend I had a chance to go to Morse's Mountain for a walk down to the beach. The tide was almost completely low when we arrived and we walked for quite a distance on the beach. The sun was brilliant and warm, I felt so fortunate to be able to be there and enjoy the beautiful weather! 

For those of you who are catching up on your Maine Arts Ed blog reading, below are the latest posts that you can find at http://meartsed.wordpress.com/. Thank you to those who have sent links to a variety of topics. There are new "upcoming events", "student and prof opps" listed that you can find on the right side of the front page of the blog. You will also notice under Artwork on the front page three new exhibits of student artwork: 2012 MLTI Screen Saver Pictures, Teague Park and Hilltop Elementary Schools (from their DOE exhibit, Oct-Dec), and RSU38, Maranacook Area Schools (from their DOE exhibit, Jan-March).
