I write this email to you as a gentle rain falls helping the grass to remain green and the flowers to bloom. I hope you are enjoying the summer as much as I am!

I travel to UMaine, Orono today to meet about some of the details for the Statewide Arts Education Conference, Arts Education: Leading the Way, Thursday, October 24, Collins Center for the Arts. I am looking forward to a conversation with Laura Artesani from the music department among others. I hope that you've requested a professional day so you can join us in 93 days. The cost for the one-day conference is $75 which includes lunch. (Price goes up after September 1). The one-day conference precedes the Maine Arts Commission two-day conference (which is a separate fee) Maine International Conference on the Arts. To learn more about the conferences please go to http://mainearts.maine.gov/Pages/Media-and-Performing/Conference-Education#. PLEASE NOTE: The workshop titles and details, all provided by MAAI teacher leaders will be available in the next few days! Purchase your ticket now at https://tickets.collinscenterforthearts.org/auto_choose_ga.asp?area=116. PLEASE NOTE: School invoices will not be an option at this years statewide conference!
