Hello Everyone:

This is my first time posting. My name is Cheryl. I live in San Francisco.
I'm creating an online arts education tutorial for a multimedia class I'm
taking and I'd like your feedback....

Does the following sound useful and relevant to a target audience of 6-8
general subject teachers in your school district?

The target audience consists of teachers without specific training in arts
education. However, the project could be useful to all teachers.

My project is a "virtual gallery" that would introduce three goals (artistic
perception; history and culture; aesthetic valuing) of the California Visual
Arts Framework to this target audience.

By "walking" through three halls of this online gallery, users would learn
the content of these goals. They would also learn how to introduce these
ideas to their students during an actual visit to a gallery. They may even
get some ideas about how to integrate these ideas into class projects.

This tutorial would be available through the world wide web.

Does this sound like it might be useful to non-arts teachers?

A bit of background about the genesis of this idea: I work as a volunteer
"gallery representative" at San Francisco's Center for the Arts & have
received some training in gallery education.

I've noticed that teachers without arts training generally look fairly
bewildered in the galleries. This tutorial would give useful general
background about arts ed. goals and would help teachers prepare for a
gallery visits if no docents were available.

I'm not a teacher, so I feel a bit removed from what teachers actually need
and would use. Any feedback would be useful and appreciated!

Thanks in advance. I subscribed to this list a week ago and have enjoyed
every posting!
