ArtsEdNet folks,

Thanks to all you art teachers, the following are some of the things I'm
planning to do for the art show. As you can see, I've gotten a lot of great
ideas from your responses to my recent query about Art Fairs!

Some students and I are designing a program for the KELLOGG BAND CONCERT &
ART SHOW, and an invitation which will be sent to parents, school board
members, board of selectmen, building committee members, and newspapers.

Every student will have at least one piece in the show, and many will have
two or three pieces included. There will be no judging or prizes, although
I will put a certificate of recognition next to those pieces which were
selected to represent Kellogg School at the REGION ONE SELECT MUSIC CONCERT
AND ART SHOW held in March.

This week I've been preparing artwork and measuring tack boards. I think
we'll have enough room on the existing tack boards, with the gym walls
being used for overflow. (the concert is in the gym) I'll be putting
narrow tables in the halls for 3D work. Each piece will have a computer
generated adhesive label attached to their colored paper matting.

A few students will be doing art demonstrations of monoprinting,
silverpoint drawing, linoblock printing, charcoal drawing, glueblock
printing, and maybe even gyotaku if I can get a fish. Since I don't have an
art room, the demonstrations will be in classrooms and/or the library.

Viewing the art show and the art demonstrations will begin after the
concert ends and last about an hour, with refreshments. I really think
these events are a great opportunity to promote music and art as something
more than just frills. This year it is especially important because we at
Kellogg School are asking for a building renovation which a few vocal
townspeople perceive as being too much money for music and art rooms.

Please feel free to add any further suggestions you might think of which a
new art teacher like myself might find useful! Thanks again for all your
