>>I am the resident "lurker" on the list....I have been enjoying many of
>>the recent threads, especially those regarding organization! I have
>>printed out so many of your wonderful ideas, lesson plans etc.
>>I am planning my annual Artsfest for March (Youth Arts Month.) I would
>>like my theme this year to center around Arts and Literacy. I have an
>>artist friend who is a bookmaker, she does incredible works of art. I'd
>>like to involve her in projects, and concentrate on promoting the arts
>>as a valid and necessary element of education. Does anyone have any
>>other ideas on how to promote this theme? Any lesson plan ideas? I have
>>a few already, but would love some input from you!
>>Also- I found a WONDERFUL Fred Babb calendar!! You know the
>>hats/t-shirts that have slogans such as "Art is one of the few things
>>left worth doing." He has a whole calendar full of such wonderful
>>sayings as "Art is the physician, vision is the prescription" and "Art
>>can take you places" and "Get Smart! Make Art!" The images are bold
>>and colorful, and my elementary kids love them. I have plastered them
>>all over my room. I bought the calendar at Books-a-Million, and it is
>>available at Amazon.com for about $14. What a deal for 12 great
