January 31 is Inspire Your Heart with Art Day.

According to MommyPoppins, there are all kinds of ways — and reasons — to celebrate. “Whether it’s written, painted, sculpted, or performed, art helps us feel, communicate, and make sense of life.

Because while your city comes to a standstill, the rest of the world keeps moving. No matter what level the winter storm warning, here are a few pointers on weathering the weather and staying connected.

By Kelly Kincaid

Today, FreeConferenceCall.com is exhibiting at the California League of Schools’ (CLS) annual Teaching with Technology conference held in Monterey, California.
