Thanks, Reatha, Jen and Sandy for your advice regarding artists-in-residence.
You've encouraged me to go back to my original plan, for a local artist to
come in and just be... an artist! Not a teacher, and not to spend all of
his/her time making a large-scale "product" for the school. Rather, to show
children what an artist does by making art and responding to their questions
and comments. Your experiences, both positive and negative are quite helpful.
I, too, have had bad experiences in the past and don't wish to relive that!
Thank you so very much. By the way, I am applying locally for the money; will
let you know if it's approved.
