Hi Judy, This is Judy from Sax Arts & Crafts. I just wanted to tell you
to stay with this group because they will meet your expectations. One
of the things you will notice is that they may have different opinions
about various issues but you will not find a more passionate group
concerning art education. You can participate on your own basis. I
participate because I too am passionate about art education and also to
stay current on issues. I respond when I think it will be of value and
ask for help when I need it. They will not let you down. Even though
most of us have not met, we will not be strangers for long. Have a good
year and if I can ever be of service, just let me know. Judy Nagel
