Sarah has brought up Jackson Pollock as a unit to motivate boys. Right now
Incredible Art Department doesn't have a lot of resources online for Jackson
You will find a listing of popular American Artists on this page:
Jackson Pollock was inspired by Navajo Sandpainting (one link I remembered
having some info is now off line -- that's the trouble with compiling
resources like this):
Quite a while ago, I did some searches for another list member on the
connections and think I saved the file. It is just impossible to put all the
wonderful links I find and resources posted to the list on the site.
Incredible Resources (formally Middle School Art) has always been a "gift"
to Getty ArtsEdNet Talk. It became a part of Incredible Art Department last

Incredible Art Department was created by Ken Rohrer, a former elementary art
teacher - now administrator. This is a wonderful place to share lesson
plans. One of the new features I started is the Files for Sharing folder.
This allows me to get lessons plans and files out very quickly to share with
the list serves - Just one of the perks of joining the list. Art Education
list helped to build Incredible Art Department over the years (Ken Rohrer
started Art Education list). When I get some time, I will get an index
created for you to access - but for now - simply watch for the posts - if
you like a file - download it. I'm still sorting and deciding the look of
the index page.
Well if you all were able to wade your way through all of that....I am going
to give you all an opportunity to jump in and play a game of fish. Remember
To play the game - just come up with a topic - culture -artist - whatever
that really interests you. What is YOUR art passion? You post your passion.
For this one - I'll reply off list to cut down on the amount of mail.
This can be a fun way for you to collect links for a topic that interests
