She’s also an artist and brings both worlds together in many different projects. In her Yogart class she encourages the students to “open up” in a different way. The Elephantbeans crew was there, and had a lot of fun sketching.

Sign the Petition for a Secretary of Arts

posted by lalabean

Dear Friends,

You may already have received this, but it is so important, I’m passing it along.

Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. While many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries, The United States has never
created such a position.

We in the arts need this and the country needs the arts–now more than ever. Please take a moment to sign this important petition and then pass it on to your friends and colleagues.
