the first is general...I've just taken a job at a contemporary art museum
(without a permanent collection) to develop programs for schools in the
Cleveland, Ohio area. Recognizing the differences among districts and
geographic regions, what kinds of programs and collaborations would you
suggest as needed within the schools. How can museum educators help teachers
(classroom and art specialists) in educating students? We have a wonderful
network of community resources here which I plan to work with, but I would
appreciate any ideas you have or sucessful programs that you know of.
the second is specific...do you have suggestions about some hands-on projects
that relate to Pop and assemblage art of the late 50s and 1960s (J. Johns,
Lichtenstein, Oldenburg, Warhol, Marisol) I have considered exploring
4-color separation process using rubber stamps--and using recyclable
materials for collage/assemblage works. Any other (clean and easy) ideas
would be great.
