Mr. Pohlmann:

Michael Delahunt sent an email over the ArtsEdNet listserve indicating
your art teacher is interested in "hands-on" professional development
opportunities in the US this summer that might provide her with new
lessons and ideas for her art classroom.

Depending on what you mean by hands-on, the Getty offers several
summer institutes and seminars for teachers and administrators, around
the country. These programs use a comprehensive approach to art
education, or discipline-based art education, from which the US national
standards in the arts are drawn. Participants leave these one- or
two-week programs with lesson plans, new ideas, and other resources.
But, perhaps most importantly, participants leave renewed and
refreshed, and feeling less isolated than they sometimes do when
working alone in their classrooms and schools. (Any previous
participants out there who wish to vouch for me?)

Later this month we will be sending out a brochure on the 1996 summer
programs which will include dates, registration, costs, housing, etc. I
have added your name to the mailing list. If anyone else out there
would like to receive a catalogue on the 1996 summer
programs, please email me (epaul) your snail-mail address
and I will add you to the list. If you have previously requested this
information, please know we will be sending the information in late
