Digging in and Digging Out

Blizzard #2 or is it #3? Who knows, who cares. It's all white, and yes it is beautiful. Kids are home - we're watching the tube, making valentines and I am still drawing tea bags.

No school today, which also meant no After the Bell. I have been working with middle school students at Kennett Middle School as part of their After the Bell program. Kathy Hrenko, the Executive Director and I went into Philadelphia a last month for a check presentation ceremony and reception at the African American Museum of Art. It was exciting and rewarding to receive a Project Stream Grant from the Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. The message that evening was overwhelmingly- we value the arts, we get it, now share your stories with everyone else- especially your legislators. I will post some of the prints we have done next week, but for now here are some great images from Martin Luther King In Service Day last month at Germantown High School in Philly.
