"On September 11, 2002, American museums will stand with their communities
in a day of remembrance and a celebration of the freedoms that sustain
America's strength: freedom to assemble, to create, to worship, to inquire,
to express ideas, and freedom from fear." (Georgia Museum of Art, Univ. of
The Art Club will go to Athens to see the exhibition of works which
illustrate or interpret each of the freedoms. Members will also be able to
participate in the commemorative installation at the museum. This program
is from 9-7 to 9-15. There should be similar programs across the country.
Prior to 9-11-02 my students will learn about Rockwell's series "The Four
Freedoms." I will then give them the list from the quote above. They must
do something in their sketchbooks to illustrate each. On 9-11 these will be
hung around my room.

Subject: September 11th Memorial Lesson
My principal came to me the other day and wants me to involve the students
(Kindergarten-4th Grade) in some sort of memorial project for September
11th. There is a community art exhibit that the schools can enter, as
well as having something on display at our own school. I'm trying to
brainstorm, but so far haven't come up with anything really dynamite. I
thought some kind of a mobile would be cool, or some kind of a group
project that everyone could contribute to. Any thoughts?
