Dear Carol, this is something I posted in March of last year. Is it
the time of year or what? Anyway it's an old post but might give you
an idea.

Dear Monkey,
We are getting rather adventurous aren't we. I'll be the
first to say
brave. How could you do Warhol and not be controversal. I'm sure you
will have some or many parents nipping at your heels on this one. I
not a prude. I think it would be fabulous. But in case you are
you could instead do a factory party or environment. Since Warhol
live in his own environment as well. The kids could make
costumes ie soupcans etc. Be sure and Have Velvet underground music
playing. For awhile he had aluminum foil cover every aspect of his
factory space.Maybe someone could video it and also have looped
going on audio and film strips projected slanted on the walls.
I am not sure if I saw the E show. I did see a documentary
on him
recently. It might have been that it also might have been Biography.
I'm sure you've found out a lot about him. Sounds like fun. I guess
you do it you might want to run it by administration I know that
kind of
ruins it. I don't know what your laws are or school system says. I
in this day in age we shouldn't be so protective with sex
and teens. Emphasize how times have changed and how STD's can kill.
So check out also "the Velvet Underground" book which was the band
Warhol started for his factory.Lou Reed,Maureen Tucker, Sterling
Morrison and John Cale. Also have you seen the Warhol web.

Good luck,
