    Summer art teachers needed
    The Cedar Key Arts Guild’s Summer Art Program Coordinators are wondering if there is anyone among you who might be interested in teaching a 2-1/2 hour (9-11:30 a.m.) workshop to children (either elementary or secondary level or both groups at different times) during the weeks of July 16-27. We still have six time slots to fill (three teachers if they will do both groups) and there is a small stipend involved.
