Hi,
I was looking at the video site "Direct Cinema Limited" checking out
the Richard Haas video.
And was wondering if anyone has seen the "Strokes of Genius" videos.
How are they? I am looking for captivating material for high school
students.
Thanks

Late in this response...it's been a busy week...the first of several.

But here is the info if I have the thread of the conversation
correct.

Presently we charge a fee for our classes...usually $30 plus we get a
budget
from the principal. $2,500 this year. However in our last academic
council
meeting...we were informed to reconsider our budget and ask only for
the
essentials. Things are getting tight. Only 600 students... minimum
of 10
classes of art (2 teachers). Without the budget we would have to up
the fee.

Years...and years ago I worked for a large school district...8 high
schools.
We had a district allotment. We were notified when we could spend the
amount... August and January. Sometimes by January it really dropped
form
the beginning of the year total. We also made any and all major
equipment
orders in the spring for the next year...3 quotes, etc. I learned to
prioritize and submit an order for anything and everything I would
need. One
year I received everything on the list...no one else ordered equipment
(enlargers, kilns, presses...etc). We also had a minimal fee of $3
for
immediate supplies and other needs. It was great. With site based
management district allotments might be a thing of the past...we also
had a
district coordinator for the fine arts...although a music
background...she
was great. Took care of all of us equally.

But if you don't spend the money then they will reduce your budget
since you
don't need it. Vicious circle. I use to carry over a start up amount
for
the next year. Learned that lesson when they reduced the amount I
would
receive since I had excess. Accountants want a bottom line...no
carryover...no one asked me why. So now, in the spring if there is
extra...I
spend it on essentials for the next year rather than let it disappear
in the
greater pool of monies for other things.

Other systems which have all become site based management...it's
tighter.
Usually received what I asked for especially when I would show a
broader
usuage that would benefit the whole school and not just the artroom.

Late but hope this might help

Don't forget to look at art parodies. There is much humor in that. The
site
for Grant's American Gothic is hysterical. Imagine an American Gothic

I have had students make tissue paper flowers when decorations were
requested
for different school functions. Use bright color combinations and lay
3-4
half sheets of contrasting colored tissue on top of one another (half
sheets
will make a big flower). Accordion fold the entire stack together. Tie
the
folded tissue in the center with a metallic or chenille pipe cleaner.
Trim
the ends of the folded paper into zigzag cuts or round them off with
scissors. Begin separating the different colored sheets of tissue by
pulling
each sheet up and away from the rest, toward the center of the stacked
paper,
creating a 3-D form. The pipe cleaners can be twisted into various
shapes for
the stamen in the center of the flower. (I think it's the stamen,
anyway.)
Sequins, glitter, beads or drawings of small insects or bees can be
glued
onto the pipe cleaners. It's certainly not a "fine art" lesson, but
when
you're given decorating duty, it's quick, easy and kids love making
them.

I think this is important!! Moisture levels are
significant if they are to carve.
I did this for the first time in Dec.
If they dry out totally, they tend to crumble.  If
they are too wet they disintegrate or something.  We
poured on a day that it rained in the afternoon.  I
missed this tip.  The ones we made in the morning
dried altogether - I poured them into cups.  The ones
poured in the afternoon never quite dried and most
became heaps of mess.  There seems to be a narrow
margin for success.  The students all had fun
regardless.
I used $ store wood carving tools - the students felt
more like artists - they will rust though, I learned
to have the kids wipe them with towels, not wash them
in the sink.  They did details with toothpicks and
paper clips.  The first day we used popsickle stick-
they're fine too.
You mentioned Henry Moore-
I have heard/read about a method of pouring the
plaster into zip-loc bags and shaping them as the
plater hardens.  I think this would be cool.
Bunki's ball idea is cool.
I used cups and milk cartons.  I'm not sure why, but
the students who did the square milk carton ones came
up with much more intersting forms.
I was thinking of doing it again with my new group and
showing them Brancusi's "The Kiss" - I haven't decided
wether or not to push my luck.  My new group of
students has been handling cow udders naked baby Jesus
quite well.
Good Luck - Dawn

Ran accross these last night.  I still have students
that draw the Twin Towers when/where I least expect
it-I am not sure if its prevailent on their minds or
if its something they "know how" to draw or what, but
I was excited to find artists working on these
projects right now - mel chin being the common factor.
(I'm feeling it's a little untimely due to the shuttle
catastrophe, but maybe its still relevant for showing
how artists deal with and even use mass media...)

An administration official said the shuttle's altitude -- over 
200,000
feet -- made it "highly unlikely" that the shuttle fell victim to a
terrorist act.
The crew members of STS-107 walked out January 16 for launch aboard
Columbia's last mission.
"We have no information at this time that indicates that this was a
terrorism incident," said Gordon Johndroe, press secretary for the
Department of Homeland Security. "Obviously, the investigation is 
just
beginning, but that is what we know now."

sure that the incident was not a terrorist attack...there was the

had no

From: "Judy Decker" <jdecker@woh.rr.com>

X-Message-Number: 20
Paul Gauguin the Savage Dream (from The National Gallery of Art - 
Home
Vision - 45 minutes) is suitable for high school and beyond. Most of 
the
images shown are of nude (or partially nude) Tahitian women. It also 
shows
some of his sculptures and ceramics. I would like to have seen more of 
his
beautiful Tahitian landscape paintings. The film explores the 
artist's
obsessive search for a "savage" alternative to his own culture which 
drove
him to Tahiti and the Marguesas. There are beautiful shots on location 
in
Tahiti and the Marqueses giving the viewer some idea of what the 
islands are
like today. The focus is on the final years of his life and for the 
most
part is told in Gaugins's own words (Donald Sutherland is the voice 
of
Gauguin) revealing his philosophy of art, life and civilization.
(One source to purchase this video online

I have Internet sources for Gauguin for anyone who request them.

I just previewed this video from our local resource center - Mexico 
Journey
to the Sun (from Video Visits- Central American Collection. 53 
minutes
long). The video shows the ancient treasures of Mexico - presents a 
little
background information on the ancient cultures as well as the Indians 
today.
Learn about the people and culture as well as historical informatoin. 
See a
segment on murals by Diego Rivera, Oaxacan wood carving, pottery and
weaving. Includes dance and music of Mexico and Day of the Dead 
celebration.
While this video is 53 minutes long - the content most important for 
the
classroom can be seen in the first 45 minutes or less (the rest is 
just
about coastal tourist attractions).
One site that a has this video available online:

Richard Hass

X-Message-Number: 25
This is my last video review for today. I really enjoyed this one.
Painting the Town:The Illusionistic Murals of Richard Haas (from 
Direct
Cinema Limited - 56 minutes long)gives biographical information and 
shows
his strong influence of historical architecture (particularly antique
prints), his training as an architect and his inspiration from 
architectural
wall painting in Germany and Italy. Following in a tradition dating 
back to
the ancient Greeks and Romans, Haas uses painted architecture to 
transform
the brutal geometry of contemporary cityscapes into beautiful glimpses 
of
the past. The video uses time-lapse photography to demonstrate how 
the
murals are made. Interviews with people on the street add a nice 
touch.
While this is 56 minutes long - you can get enough shown in one class 
period
for students to get the main ideas of his work. (one site to order 
online
http://makeashorterlink.com/?Q37223F43 )
I have Internet resources for Hass for anyone who wishes.

I agree, research in groups or pairs.  I am currently on that
type of collaboration at this time.  Heraldry, each group chose
a country from a list I found, research the heraldry of that
country, then because they were going to battle with the rest of
the class, each student in the group had to create a shield
which would be recognized by what I am calling, families within
their country.  Short description here of lesson.  Shield are

Hi again, Judy.
2 articles that I posted on art-themagazine.com dealt with the topic 
of
humor and art.  Perhaps the information there can provide you with 
some of
what you are looking for.  Here are the addresses:

X-Message-Number: 34
Bunki,
I've rethought this plaster thing. I think it might be a little too 
tough for
me right now. I've already been warned that I have two potentially bad 
8th
grade classes.
  I'm driving myself nuts trying to decide if I should reteach the 
same
projects for seventh and 8th, or try some new things. I have ready the 
word
pictures for seventh and the an O'keefe pastel project I talked to you 
about
a while back. I want to try these but I also hate the idea of a train 
wreck.
It's not just my embarrassment, but I really want the kids to have a 
good
experiece. That's why I can't get over this fear of screwing up.
    My problem is I want to try new things, but I'm not sure if I 
really have
taught the previous ones as well as I can yet.
    What do you think. Is it best for a new teacher not to be so 
concerned
with curriculum the first year and just try to focus on classroom 
procedures
and management?
     Oh, one more thing. I cannot for the life of me find your email 
about
ironing tempera paintings. I remember asking my mentor teacher before 
she
left if she ever painted on paper and she said she used canvas board 
because
of the wrinkling and curling. This may be your little secret. I forget 
how
involved this is. Can you tell me again, please.

teacher focuses on him/herself. Part of this is you are learning to
establish classroom management, create a curriculum (let's face it, 
teaching
math out of a math book would be less complicated, but definately not 
as
fun!), manage supplies, and the zillion other things that only jumping 
into
the trenches will teach you. Right now focus on teaching to your best
ability, but don't get so bogged down that you neglect to have fun 
with your
career. I change projects every year - more for my sake than the 
student's.
Last semester I had my middle school students create their own culture 
-
government, religion, monetary system, family structure, etc. and 
then
create art based on their culture. My discipline problems were at 
their
all-time lowest due to student involvement. :-)
I have my students paint on paper all the time. We tape it onto a 
board on
all 4 sides of the paper with low-tack masking tape. Gesso, paint, 
and
remove tape when finished. If you tape it all the way around and not 
just
tack it down the paper will flatten back out as the gesso dries.
Good luck!

Sorry,
My mistake, I sent an email to Bunki Kramer to the list by mistake.
I guess there's a first time for everything.

Mike-
This is my first year in the art classroom and my
first year with middle school students.  I spent
almost every night before a new project in a
pertrified state - especially when I do things like
decide to do linoleum cuts even though the former art
teacher said she would never try it with them.  In the
second or third class one day when we were using
exacto blades to cut stryofoam, my principal came by
(he does so routinely)- and informed me that if any
blades were missing, to call and they would come down
with a metal detector!
I work in a pretty rough district, but that's not my
point.  Ususally I let them know that it's a special
privilege and they typically respond with pride and
excellent behavior.  They also know if they can't
handle the artist's tools appropriately, there is an
alternative assignment file...
When I did the plaster project it was amazing to see
how intently even my rowdiest classes worked.  There
are also students who excel and understand working in
3D who struggle with all things 2D.
Wether the project is successful or not, students will
appreciate the opportunity, and will have a better
understanding of what goes into "sculpture in the
round.

I have a class with 29 boys and 5 girls - they are
many and highly active little souls.  I am always
trying to think of what I should do to make this class
more manageable and even a little more fun, because
many of them have the coolest personalities...They
typically are the wrench in my plans though.
Maybe we should solicit tips from artednetters on
activities specially for "bad" classes...
It is awesome to have all of the experience of
experienced teachers at our fingertips...
Good luck

WOW is right,Sara!
I spent all afternoon and evening (after the deer incident) exploring 
the links you suggested. What a wealth of info. on some of my favorite 
personal activities.
Thanks.
