Immersive Game Design: A 21st Century Arts Education Strategy
Back to School Round Up

We have had a busy summer getting ready for our 60th Anniversary celebration that began with the launch of our new web site and will continue in the fall with our Annual Gala. Other highlights include the second year of the Young Audiences National Arts In Education Leadership Institute and the success of our digital gaming initiative. This is the first of our improved newsletters that features current happenings from around the network. The design and programming of the newsletter is tailored for a select number of entries, so I will be sending out the newsletter biweekly.

 

Have a great September,

Marcus
