Arts First 2009 for Music & Visual Arts Educators, September 3, Oakland Schools, Waterford MI

[Graphic from : ]

AfriClassical has received this announcement for Educators from Hedy Blatt, Fine Arts Consultant, Oakland Schools:
Hello Everyone! Can you please share this ARTS FIRST! brochure with all your fine arts networks and colleagues? It’s going to be a super conference, but it’s hard getting the word out at this time of year. Please note that attendees do not need to live or work in Oakland County and many districts will allow their staff to attend even though they are in session. Many thanks for your help! I appreciate it very much!
