2 questions for your advice:
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.
