The Arts and Science Council has launched an Education Network web site to connect teachers, parents and artists throughout Mecklenburg County with opportunities for kids and teens to learn through art.

The site offers success stories, cultural lesson plans, grant opportunities, a directory of teaching artists and a calendar of arts opportunities suitable for youth and families.
“We look forward in the coming weeks and months to the collaboration and idea generation we expect from the network," said Barbara Ann Temple, a former CMS teacher who's now the ASC vice president of education.
I thought this item would make a nice break from the CMS budget. But if you're into that, this is a good week to get involved. See a list of events here and read the budget here.
