Arts Education with Mrs. Armbruster

Website created by curriculum renewal teacher writer Danyelle Armbruster, who is remotely teaching her K-8 arts education classes from Emerald Ridge Elementary School in White City, SK.  The website she has created for her students is rich with video assignments and demonstrations that kids can interact with.
