Respond to this message.

I would like to respond to the inquiry question, "How can we make one
time visits or brief "art" experiences relevant in some kind of on-going way
for students?" I think that the most important thing here, is to make the
art experiences relevant to the student's lives and tie it into what they are
studying. If the students were to have an incredibly personal experience
with art, they may be able to pull that experience out from their memory one
day. I realize that personal experiences are hard to come by, but many
children only need a small peice of personal attention to feel special. For
example, here at the University of Arizona I always see a tour of students
walking around campus. They always look so amazed while walking around and
site seeing. I think that this experience would have a significant impact on
a child. While on campus, why not take a tour of the several art galleries
and museums on campus. I think that a child would remember this experience
for a long time and that whenever they heard something about the U of A, they
could relate and say, "Yeah, I've been there, done that!"
