Art Lesson Plans

We have long championed Arts Education in our schools and have been blogging about it for years. Now, we’re hoping to take it one step further by sharing some curriculum-based programs with the many teachers and parents out there who are looking for ways to inspire, nurture, and encourage their kids’ creative spirits.
