For those of you that live in the Los Angeles area, I just took my 5th
graders to see some massive, amazing wall hangings of El Anatsui at the
Fowler Museum on the UCLA campus. They are just fantastic to behold. The
Fowler has a show up right now of contemp. African artists plus a new show
of Sri Lankan masks. Both shows at very good. The Fowler is always free and
parking is free for buses.
Go see those wall hangings of El Anatsui's. Wow. I saw his work at the
Venice Biennale two years ago. LOVE IT!!!!

You can find me at the Art Educators of Minnesota hospitality table most of
the time answering questions, handing out great stuff and chatting with

Greetings Eve and all,
Are you looking for an art history textbook or studio text? I always
liked Davis Publications.
Here is a link to their selection for high school. Visual Experience
is also good for 8th grade. The former teacher at the school where I
taught used it for 8th grade - but she moved to high school, she took
the books with her.

When I taught high school, I used Discovering Art History and
purchased one copy of several of the individual media resources.
Regards,
Judy Decker

Nick Cave at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
http://www.ybca.org/tickets/production/view.aspx?id=8191
>From the web site:
>>YBCA presents the largest scale presentation of work by Chicago-based
artist, Nick Cave, featuring forty of his "Soundsuits"multi-layered
mixed-media, wearable sculptures named for the sounds made when the
sculptures are worn. As reminiscent of African and religious ceremonial
costumes as they are of haute couture, Cave's work explores issues of
ceremony, ritual, myth and identity. He does this through a layering of
concepts, highly-skilled techniques and varied traditions, using materials
such as fabrics, beads, sequins, old bottle caps, rusted iron, sticks,
twigs, leaves and hair. Mad, humorous, elaborate, grotesque, glamorous and
unexpected, the Soundsuits are created from scavenged ordinary
materialsdetritus from both nature and culturethat Cave re-contextualizes
into visionary masterpieces.

A good studio art text for teens is a Barrons Educational Aspire Series
It's highly recommended by School Library Journal and others
COLSTON, Valerie. 200 Projects to Strengthen Your Art Skills. 128p.
(Aspire Series). illus. photos. reprods. glossary. index. Barron's.
2008. paper. $21.99. ISBN 978-0-7641-3811-9.
 School Library Journal.
Adult/High SchoolThis fascinating book will appeal to serious
students of art, casual hobbyists, and anyone curious about the how
and why behind a variety of artistic techniques. Written with art
students in mind, it includes a section on putting together a
portfolio and examples of art-school applicants' sketchbooks and
portfolios. The text takes a do-it-yourself approach to learning a
full complement of basic and intermediate techniques. Colston gathers
examples and prescribes an assortment of observation exercises and
projects that explore such concepts as shadow, distortion, mood, and
collage. Each mini lesson stands on its own, so readers can choose
from projects that catch their interest. Instructions are clear and
brief, and concepts are grouped around the themes of line, color,
texture, and form. The author covers an assortment of media, but most
of the techniques and exercises focus on drawing and painting. Readers
looking for in-depth explanations of particular techniques won't find
step-by-step guidelines in exhaustive detail, but Colston does a good
job of providing an overview of the fundamentals and introducing a
wide range of techniques. The dynamic layout is filled to the brim
with illustrations, and the project ideas will stimulate creativity
and encourage experimentation.Heidi Dolamore, San Mateo County
Library, CA
http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/article/CA6601442.html
Inkrethink Blog author Anna Lewis highly recommends this book for teen
reader.
. . .To continue this creativity theme, here are some great art books
for teens I recently discovered. Last year on the YALSA listserve,
someone asked for recommendations of good books about art for teens
and this was one of the books suggested. Always loving a good art
book, I had to hunt it down. What a perfect book for teens. I wish I
had this book in high school. I had one book on painting and one book
on illustration - both very worn out now. 200 Projects is one of the
most comprehesive, clear, and concise art books on the market. INK

Dear Fellow Middle School Art Educators (with apologies to others),
,
Some of you have already stepped up to help (thank you), but I wanted to
make absolutely sure that anyone who wanted to had the opportunity to be
included.
The NAEA middle level division program this year is "A Feast for the Mind".
We would like to show how much thinking happens in art, about art and
through art for students.
If you are willing to share with your peers, please send one or two JPEG
images (process and/or product) along with a statement (student art
statement or teacher statement) about the work or about the project or about
the process. 
The final program will be available after the conference. Since it is in 10
days, please send ASAP. 
with thanks~creatively,
Linda W. Kieling
Middle School, Oregon
