Number Magazine is a free quarterly art journal that seeks to Amplify the voices of artists living in the South. They accept proposals for articles, interviews, and reviews on a rolling basis. Check out www.Numberinc.org for more information. If you know a great Art Educator and want to nominate them as an Art-Ed Hero, please email Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org.
They also have the Young Art Writers Project(YAWP) that offers resources to Kindergarten-college teachers that seek to encourage kids to write about art in their communities by publishing their work online and in the quarterly magazine. Please spread the word to educators about this resource. If you know a business that would like to distribute Number Magazine in Donelson email Randy Purcell at Randy@numberinc.org. Here’s a picture of me getting the latest edition at Caliber Coffee.
