Arts Chat webinar series


Update: The Arts Chat webinars will continue in 2010. The webinars will take on a slightly different format: time will be devoted at the beginning of each session for an update from the state level, and then teachers will present initiatives from their classrooms. If you are interested in presenting something from your school or district, contact the webinar organizer. Act 48 hours will not be available for the 2010 webinars.

The 2010 webinars will be held on the following dates at 4 PM:
