Principal Supplement Sept/Oct 2011: Champion Creatively Alive Children

Crayola and NAESP are proud to help you “Champion Creatively Alive Children” and support arts-infused education.

We encourage you to immerse yourself in the articles below to learn more about the best practices your colleagues throughout the country are using and to further explore innovative ways of infusing art into your school.
