Dear Kimberly:
If I lived in your area, I would go. It sounds well worth my effort,
exciting and interesting! We need things like this to share ideas, do new
things, build each other, expand ourselves. I'd support it 100%.

Subject: Workshops - your input

>We are in the revising our education program including workshops for
>teachers (Both Art Teachers and teachers in other subjects).
>I've proposed that we have an Art Teacher Gallery Talk at the beginning of
>each new exhibit. This would include: a brief gallery talk by the educator
>or director, printed packets of materials about the artist(s), a list of
>related websites (printed or on disk), time to brainstorm with each other
>(and our educator), and draw up their own lesson plans. We could provide
>refreshments in the classroom. Because some teachers in the 18 counties we
>serve might be traveling 2 hours to get to us (over two lane blacktop
>highways with large deer population), we would probably schedule this
>in the afternoon on Saturdays, and provide refreshments. We could also
>with the Education Service Center to schedule the same day as some other
>workshops, then some schools would provide transportation for their
>teachers. We would also ask the ESC Region XV to provide credit to the
>teachers for attending. We would ask the collections manager about setting
>up slides of upcoming exhibits, with dates, and artist information. It
>depend on our contract with the artist or lending organization whether or
>not we could release the information.
>What do you think? If you lived in our area would you think this type of
>workshop was worth your time? Also I would love to hear about any workshops
>(museum or other) that you found enriching? If you know someone we could
>contact then even better.
