Thanks for this great tip - my art club may have the chance to try clamation
the teacher offering his video camera comes through. Our state - Mo. might
have a
workshop on this too - there is some kind of contest in the spring we could
if we pull it off sucessfully. Catch is this teacher wants me to help him
with a
variety show and that is definitely not my thing - so if I don;t give he may
not give.
