Teresa, where do you live? I would love to move to Europe for my last three
years of teaching and wonder how to go about doing that. Klara in Seattle

When I was teaching in Africa, I had a $20,000 art
supply budget for 550 students. It was cut year 3 to
$12,000. Before I left, we agreed $25/year per student
was a good figure to set.

In most places in Europe where I live now is $5-10/per
student. I agree, it is disgraceful. In Seattle, there
was an ad campaign to give up one cup of coffee (i.e.
Starbucks) for the homeless. Why not this concept for
the arts?
