What to do with $1500 donation? A suggestion: Purchase and laminate as many
small to medium size prints as you can manage to catalog, and set up a
lending library, allowing students to borrow them and hang them at home to
share with their family. As students learn about these artists, information
can be attached to the back (if not already printed on there). Consider
labeling the prints on the back "property of", or "provided by the _____
fund." just in case. This has worked extremely well in many schools. The
prints, obviously, could also be used to do a museum exhibition unit, a
display connected to a specific art history unit, research topics, literary
connections, social studies connections, and more. Maybe other teachers
would be interested in borrowing them for their classrooms too. You are
fortunate to have received such a special donation.
