Author Diane Robbins believes teaching art should be as fun as learning it. In her newest publication, the “Mister Mean Bean” author provides over 20 unique and original art activities designed to help busy teachers teach art with minimum fuss. “Time Saving Art Projects for the Busy Teacher” (published by Xlibris) Books One and Two are especially tailored to cater to instructional objectives for students of K-8.
“With all the budget cuts in schools, the arts are the first to be affected,” Robbins says. “These books aim to help teachers teach art easier despite these limits.”
The patterns are used for more than one project. This allows teachers to create one set of patterns for the projects in the book. Teachers can make one set of patterns to be used for projects from September to January. Book 2 provides activities for February to May/June.
Handy, creative and easy to follow, “Time Saving Art Projects for the Busy Teacher” offers an efficient teaching tool to smoothly facilitate art projects in the classroom. It harnesses the students creativity, engages interest while significantly lessens the time and resources required to formulate new art activities day by day.

The Chinese Martial Arts Teaching Service Standardization conference will be held at Shaolin Institute at 4350 Peachtree Industrial BLVD, studio 500 A, Norcross GA, on February 22, 2015, and will discuss: (1) why CMA Instructors worldwide are paid salaries and wages that are low in comparison to other education services, (2) what is lacking in CMA services and (3) solutions to raise the pay of CMA instructors with a commensurate improvement in teaching and managing services.
The main topics of discussion will be the need to match the high expectations of Traditional CMA students with a high level of teaching service and provision of a remarkable learning experience to meet modern high-stress lifestyle needs. “With the advanced skills of CMA instructors to provide these valuable services, they should be able to enjoy higher compensation,” expressed a conference coordinator.
CMA cannot be taught simply as the art of self-defense as it includes many more valuable levels of instruction, including mind-body discipline and character training. CMA schools must embrace students value-based experience along with the drive for a ‘warrior character’ and honor, said the head master of the conference, Shi DeRu.
With generations of experience in translating the life values taught by the great ancient Chinese arts and minds here in the U.S., the Shaolin Institute is an established cultural, health-wellness and martial arts institute, focusing on high conscious communication, personal health and safety education, mind-body training.
The institute recognizes the true value of its instructors in providing a true experience of ancient Chinese Martial Arts and is currently paving the way for all Chinese Martial Arts schools worldwide to pay instructors between $ 25,000 to $ 50,000/year in salaries and wages, stated a conference assistant director.
If the main focus of the Institute is health and happiness of each individual who is willing to travel on that high conscious health path preserving thousands of years of wisdom of China and of the Universe, there should be generations of sufficient income to pay those valuable staff members for their services, commented by the conference coordinator.
The institute is currently in expansion and is creating more campuses in the US and around the world. The institute is also seeking the talents of a few audacious, enthusiastic, personable staff members with impeccable working ethics and solid integrity and character, and excellent people and organizational skills to join the dynamic team and help set a new benchmark of quality for staffers in the CMA community.
The director of the institute expressed the following: We hope that we will find minds that fit within our growing organization – those with compassion and passion in Chinese philosophy, high conscious thinking, creativity, natural healing and arts – to meet the needs of the modern, high-stress world and raise up low consciousness.
The director continued to explain: The first two open areas for employment are as a teaching-service manager trainee or an instructor service trainee &.
These roles are designed to promote the Institute and enroll fit minds to teach and spread the news of health and happiness of the ancient Chan way, with freedom of the mind and of the body.
The director mentioned that the primary role of the open positions is to promote the Institute image of compassion, self-discipline and self-rediscovering, and recruit qualified students nation-wide and world-wide by representing the campus they work for by welcoming, interviewing and guiding prospective students, future leaders and families, answering questions and following up with calls.

Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) January 01, 2015
The Saint Paul Conservatory of Music presents the next installment in their Coffee Concert performance series. Paul Metzger will play Improvisations on Modified Banjo at the University Athletic Club, located at 340 Cedar Ave., at noon on Wednesday, Jan. 7.
Since way back, Metzger has been experimenting, playing his art guitar with a crash cymbal mounted to its bottom and his distinct heavily-modified 23-string banjo. His music is part raga and part free improvisations that wind their way through the inner ear. He pulls the listener inwards and then takes them out the backdoor to experience the other. Paul Metzger is a 2013 McKnight Artist Fellow and has released 14 LPs. His most recent work, Tombeaux, was released on the Nero’s Neptune label. Listen to his work at http://www.paulmetzger.net
Coffee concerts are free and open to the public, offered on the first Wednesday of each month from November to May. The performances all begin at noon and are followed by coffee, bagels and an opportunity to meet and talk with the performers.
