I used to do a quarterly newsletter with the music department.... (we called it Partners in Art - with Art Lines on one side and Music Notes on the other) - I think I used publisher to create it. My side usually had a short paragraph for each grade level highlighting what we'd been doing that quarter, and then an artist highlight - this usually included a picture of a famous artwork one of the grade's had been working on and some info about that artist. Then in the side columns I included Quoteable Quotes (famous artist quotes) and Websites to Explore. We also had a column listing cultural events in the area. We tried to have them ready so that teachers could send them home with gradecards. I'd be happy to email you a copy if you're interested... just let me know! :) Good luck!
