During this four session course teachers will discover the world of the

art-making. Session one, February 19: Participants will tour the Terra
Museum exhibition Outsider and Folk Art from Chicago Collections, hear
gallery owner and former classroom teacher Carl Hammer talk about his views
on outsider art, work with Jerry Stefl, IAEA President and Educator, Carl
Sandburg High School, on why outsider art should be a part of classroom
curriculum, and visit Judy Saslow Gallery in River North; Session two,
February 26: Chicago as a center for outsider approaches in other
disciplines will be explored, as participants investigate techniques for
teaching blues music as exemplified by the Willie Dixon Blues Heaven
Foundation Blues in the Schools Program, and improvisational theater with
Martin de Maat of Second City; Session three, March 4: We will spend a day
at Intuit: the Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, to work with gallery
staff there on classroom mactivities, learn about the exciting work done by
Carl Sandburg High School students based on outsider art with Jerry Stefl,
and enjoy a workshop by Chicago artist David Philpot; Session four, March
11: Participants will go on field trips to the Roger Brown Study
Collection, where Lisa Stone discuss the influence of outsider art on
Chicago art in general and the outsider tradition in the Midwest, after
which we will travel to the Elliot Donnelly Youth Center to tour with Mary
A. Young, Project Director for the Grand Boulevard Arts Initiative, the
public art works created by Chicago artists Mr. Imagination, David Philpot,
