As for teaching periods of art or artists, I have students "become" the
artist and come in to discuss their work. Sometimes they dress up for the
part, sometimes they do multimedia presentations - each student is different
and handles it differently. It's much more interesting and fun and teaches
the same skills as the model below.
Where are the contemporary artists and curricula? So many examples in this
listserve are from the 19th century.
