Think Beyond the Bubbles





Plus the slogan is brilliant for arts education “Think beyond the bubbles.”  Love the way it is organized by the brain and the heart logos. Do not love the color scheme, but the way it is organized, and the way you can scroll over each box and get a story, is cool.   This is part of new advocacy campaign from the National Association for Music Education.
