My January has flown by and I am ready for some more SNOW!! I understand that there is still plenty up north but here in the mid-coast I am seeing a great deal of hay field across from my home. If we're going to have winter and cold we should have snow on the ground. Whatever your feelings are about the snow I hope your last few days of January are fun ones and that your role in arts education is productive!

Planning for or thinking about going to the National Art Education conference in Fort Worth, TX in March? If so, and you are looking to share a room please contact Belfast art teacher Heidi O'Donnell at heidioc at hotmail.com.<mailto:heidioc at hotmail.com>
