Big time puppetry returns to the Alamo City on Wednesday, November 20, thanks to the Children’s Fine Art Series, who have been in San Antonio for 31 years now.

"It actually was the creation of the Montessori school my children were attending," said Executive Director Kathleen Miller. "When I started there wasn’t a whole lot of choice. But I think along the way a lot of people have realized how important that is for young children, and that they can develop that appreciation for arts at that young age."

In the first segment:

After school arts programs build a variety of socio-emotional areas in a child's life, but often times these programs don't extend to the poor.

The John Lennon Educational Bus stopped this week in San Antonio, where it was stationed at Café College downtown.  The staff visited middle schools,  high schools and colleges where they help students write, record, and make videos for original music. 

Some students have never played instruments, so the bus staff also gave basic lessons. The bus has been around for 16 years, and they anticipate a second bus will be deployed in May for use in Europe.

On Saturday the Kashmere High School Marching band, the modern day group of students carrying the name of the legendary Conrad O. Johnson-led award winning group of the late 60s, marched to lead the Save Texas Schools rally at the State Capitol in Austin to urge lawmakers to stop cutting funding to public schools and reign-in standardized testing.
