I am interested in making Nigerian Adire cloth with 2nd graders. Other
than cooking up a resist paste is there anything else I can use? Do you
think watered down blue acrylic paint will stay in when whatever is used
for the resist is washed out?

Museum of Art

Dear Art Educators,

Many of you will be interested in viewing these online
videos....Featured in Scout Report January 25.

14. Los Angeles County Museum of Art: Videos and Podcasts [QuickTime,

Art lovers who can't make it down to 5905 Wilshire Boulevard in Los
will enjoy mulling over some of the videos and podcasts presented on
site. Currently, the site has over fifty different programs, and the Los
Angeles County Museum of Art will continue to add new programs over the
coming months. In the "Current Features" area, visitors can take a walk
through the new museum campus and also learn a bit about an exhibition
highlights the work of Salvador Dali. Other visitors may be more
in the "Public Programs" area. Here they can listen to conversations and
dialogues with the likes of Anthony Hernandez, Ken Gonzales-Day, Jeff
and John Baldessari. Finally, the "Documentaries" area offers up
profiles of
Jacob Lawrence, a group of contemporary potters, and noted fluorescent
artist Dan Flavin. [KMG]

Here is a site to forward to the math people in your building.....

3. Interactives: 3D Shapes [Macromedia Flash Player]

How much liquid can that glass hold? What are the dimensions of that
that's heading off to a friend overseas? Answers to both of those
(and many more) can be found in this lovely interactive feature on 3D
created by experts at the Annenberg Media group. Visitors to this site
learn about three-dimensional geometric shapes by examining a number of
objects through a number of interactive exercises and games. The
are divided into four sections, which include "3D Shapes", "Surface Area
Volume", and "Platonic Solids". The "Platonic Solids" area is quite a
bit of
fun, as visitors will get the opportunity to print out foldable shapes
as a tetrahedron. A short fifteen question quiz that tests the materials
covered by these various activities rounds out the site. [KMG]
