Teachers earn art leadership awards

Two Beaufort County art teachers have received Artsonia's Annual Leadership Awards for the second consecutive year.

Bluffton Elementary School art teacher Karen Beltz and Coosa Elementary School art teacher Donna Sams received the recognition in 2011 and again this year.

Artsonia is an online student-art gallery that allows teachers and students to upload photographs of their art for others to see. The award, given to 10 teachers from each state, recognizes teachers who encourage family and community involvement in arts education and integrate technology into their schools' art programs.
