I love the things that just appear on my digital doorstep. Since my husband introduced me to google alerts, every day I get information both useful and quirky. At the moment, in addition to alerts for “arts education” + “gina harrison” [always good to know what the several of us are up to], I’m getting all the news online about “Guys & Dolls.” The Frank Loesser 1950 classic will be Northwood’s Spring Musical March 25-27. So today I learned via the Huffington Post that Lady Gaga was a dynamic Miss Adelaide in her middle school G&D production.
On the E-Newsletter front, Edutopia is featuring some of their recent articles on Parent Participation. This topic is timely for arts education types since March is right around the corner. March is Music in Our Schools Month, Theatre in Our Schools Month, and Youth Art Month. Visit these websites. There are lots of ideas for celebrating. Help spread the word. Volunteer. Go see a student production, exhibit, or presentation.
