As summer winds down and back-to-school approaches we're feeling both excited and nostalgic for the summer that was and the year that is to come. Some things on our radar this week:
- Even though we're not going back-to-school ourselves, we're still craving new pens! All the better to use in our new RxArt coloring book, launching at the RxArt Fall Gala on September 22nd. If you're able to attend this wonderful event, DO!
- There's a new wonderful study out on the benefits of art-integrated learning in the classroom. What better way to learn about fractions than through mixing paint? Or sequencing through drumming? Read the exciting results here.
- And finally, since we've been on a bit of a Muppets binge recently, we couldn't be more excited to learn that the heart and soul (and muscle) of the Muppets herself, Miss Piggy, will be teaming up with Opening Ceremony for Fashion's Night Out at the Ace Hotel!
