Hi, have you seen Google's logo today? It's about Frank Lloyd Wright...
It's gorgeous, which gave me an idea (for next year), it could be a great
project: invent a logo for Google, and then we only have to choose a day, a
theme, an artist etc, there are endless possibilities...

I am surfing the internet early this morning looking for some uplifting, =

The administrational crud, and red tape is what weighs down our wings.

In a real funk about 1/2 of my job next year. As I wrote to a few close =
friends earlier this week...

I am being involuntarily transferred out of one of my 2 elementaries =
that I have taught at for 12 years.
I am going to have to share a school with another art teacher, and share =
a room at that school with the other art teacher, and 3 music teachers. =
They will not be there when I'm there, just their stuff ARGHHHHHHH !!!!=20
What doesn't kill you will make you stronger !!! my new mantra !!!!

school is extremely supportive of my program. (so there are good points) =
The other 2 days are a crap shoot at this point.

Thanks for listening, CB :)

Good ideas Jeryl. Here is another one I have used. Collect duplicate
postcard-sized reproductions. They are great for matching games for the
young ones.

I have a huge collection of postcards - watch Dover Publications for some
nice sets - I also used calendars forever... it wasn't until almost 20 years
of teaching that I was able to order some nice prints for the art room.

As for matching games with postcards - I think I ordered some of my sets of
postcards through the book "Mommy, It's a Renoir" - it is a nice little book
for teachers of youngers -
http://www.kidsart.com/store/csm.html

I love postcards for sorting activities - I introduce an artist by gathering
postcards of their work and some others - kind of play the 'which one
doesn't belong' game... kid's list attributes on blank postcards - we sort
those into groups - (surprise... ends up grouping by elements) and then can
identify styles based on their observations.

Hi, I just signed up here. I have just been hired for my first teaching job...a K-8 art teacher at a new charter school. Because the school is new, and because I have no experience, I could use some help, really any advice at all...but right now I'm in the process of creating my supply list. I was given a catalog and asked to make a list. Right now, there is no equipment, no supplies. I am starting from scratch. It's kind of a daunting task. I'm having trouble even picking out paints and papers. If any of you have any ideas, favorite brands, equipment and shelving that has worked well for you, cheap solutions, things I can't live without...I'd love to hear them. Thanks so much in advance!

Kathy Douglas, can you post more info on making the God's Eyes with 1st
graders? I liked the thoughtfulness of your lesson. But what do you use for
sticks, and how do the kids connect additional colors of yarn?

I've done this with 4th graders. First I gave them a single popsicle stick
which they were to wrap with a length of yarn, laying each wrap next to the
one before (not overlapping) Once they had that skill, the God's Eye weaving
was fairly easy. But 1st graders? Yikes!

Great Question! My attitude toward children making art is considered by some to be a little "out there"...but part of it is that children need to start making things long before they are able to do them perfectly. Imagine if toddlers were not allowed to walk until they could do it perfectly...so the first stick weavings that children complete are a little rough looking...but for those who are interested in this technique lots of practice takes them to better and tighter and more perfect pieces. My little guys use two tongue depressors. They lay them on the table in the shape of a cross or plus sign. they place a teeny piece of transparent tape across the sticks. then they turn the cross shape over and do that again, securing the sticks. I advise them to wrap their first color around the stick and I help those who have trouble. I found after many years of trial and error that various approaches help various kids. for some I number the four points lightly in pencil to help them avoid switching directio
n. for others I stand behind them and guide their hands for a minute. but the best technique was to challenge them to use seven or eight colors--by some magic, they suddenly seem to "get it" by about the third or fourth color. No knots are tied...each color wraps around the end of the previous color. when they have had enough, they use a teeny little piece of transparent tape to secure the end and then can use feathers, sequins, pompoms, etc. as well as sharpie marker drawings on the sticks to finish the piece. Most carry out some sort of symbolic idea (my mother's favorite color, Red Sox colors, etc)They are six years old, so, as I said, their work is the work of little kids. But they practice and get better over time. The sharing at the end of class focuses on the symbolism. By third grade (my oldest) children take on the challenge of weaving on wooden chopsticks which I get at an Asian grocery store.
the parents at my school are well versed in my program and so do not expect each take home piece to look like adult work. the children are very proud of their work.

<DIV>Great Question!&nbsp; My attitude toward children making art is considered by some to be a little "out there"...but part of it is that children need to start making things long before they are able to do&nbsp;them perfectly.&nbsp; Imagine if&nbsp;toddlers were not allowed to walk until they could do it perfectly...so the first stick weavings that children complete are a little rough looking...but for those who are interested in this technique lots of practice takes them to better and tighter and more perfect pieces.&nbsp;&nbsp;My little guys use two tongue depressors.&nbsp; They lay them on the table in the shape of a cross or plus sign.&nbsp; they place a teeny piece of transparent tape across the sticks. then they turn the cross shape over and do that again, securing the sticks.&nbsp; I advise them to wrap their first color around the stick and&nbsp;I help those who have trouble.&nbsp; I found after many years of trial and error that various approaches help various kids.&nbsp; for some I number the four points lightly in pencil to help them avoid switching direction.&nbsp; for others I stand behind them and guide their hands for a minute.&nbsp; but&nbsp;the best technique was to challenge them to use seven or eight colors--by some magic, they suddenly seem to "get it" by about the third or fourth color.&nbsp; No knots are tied...each color wraps around the end of the previous color. when they have had enough, they use a teeny&nbsp;little piece of transparent tape to secure the end and then can use feathers, sequins, pompoms, etc. as well as sharpie marker drawings on the sticks to finish the piece.&nbsp; Most carry out some sort of symbolic idea (my mother's favorite color, Red Sox colors, etc)They are six years old, so, as I said, their work is the work of little kids. But they practice and get better over time. The sharing at the end of class focuses on the symbolism.&nbsp; By third grade (my oldest) children take on the challenge of weaving on wooden&nbsp;chopsticks which I get at an&nbsp;Asian grocery store.&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV>the parents at my school are well versed in my program and so do not expect each take home piece to look like adult work.&nbsp; the children are very proud of their work.</DIV>

Stacie,
Congrats on your new job! I am a teacher at a K-8 charter school and am more 
than willing to share supply ideas with you. Have they given you a budget to 
work with? This will be the biggest factor in determining how you stock up 
for the year. Feel free to email me off of the list and i can give you some 
tips on dealing with the K-8 charter world.  :)

Staci: after you make your supply order, consider making a cool looking newsletter to the parents introducing yourself and your upcoming program.  And highlight "things that money can't buy"  My parents are so wonderful for sending in yarn and cloth remnants, ribbon, fancy paper and so on.  Some contributions go very quietly into the trash, but most of them are life savers and stimulants to the art program.  We artists are scroungers, aren't we!  Actually the ART EDUCATION artical referenced earlier by George Szekely, has a large focus on students bringing in their own art media.  I recommend that for summer reading and inspiration.  And by the way, if you write to George (I think his email is at the end of the article) he will mail you a copy of the video for free. It is wonderful.
good luck to you in your new job.  it is the best job in the world.

This will be the easiest year for you to purchase supplies, as schools tend 
to be more supportive of new teachers and new programs. What I do every year 
is go page by page through each catalog, writing down what supplies I want. 
When I start working within my budget I start chopping my "wants" until I 
have hit my budget. I ordered 30 watercolor trays, 30 oil pastel sets (I 
love the Crayola oil pastels - nice and thick and take alot of abuse), etc. 
My average class size is 24, with some years jumping to 28, so 30 gives me 
an extra or two. I love the Prang "Biggie" tempera cakes for ease of use, 
and cleanup, and the ability to purchase replacement cakes easily. I use 
these more than the watercolors, teaching my students to monitor their water 
usage for values. Order LOTS of colored paper - the colors I use the most 
are blue and black. Don't forget to purchase stuff like wiggly eyes, 
feathers, pompons, pipe cleaners, etc. Even if you don't have an immediate 
use for these you will discover a project mid-year where you will want 
these. Don't forget to order instuctional books, reproductions, check to see 
how you will access overhead projectors, etc, purchase a CD player now, and 
some CD's (Sax carries a nice starter selection). I like SAX True Colors 
liquid tempera, as well as the new Crayola II temperas. Order nice scissors 
now, and label them immediately!!! Paintbrushes are a must - for the little 
ones I like the chubby brushes, older kids I like the Crayola sets. Don't 
forget to stock  your desk - my district expects you to purchase pens, paper 
clips, tape, etc. from your budget. Don't try to skimp on supplies - they 
will set your future budget by what you order now. :-)

Thank you so much.  I'm going to need all of the help I can get.  The school is completely new, the art room isn't even built yet!  So they asked me to come up with a list of things I want for my room.  This includes art materials and storage and well, everything I suppose.  It's very challenging, especially because they haven't given me an actual budget.  Right now I'm just going through the Sax catalog, listing things I might need for the first few weeks of school, then things I know I'll want later in the year and then finally a wish list.  I haven't finished my list yet, but I could email it when I get it done.  In the meantime, and advice would be super!

If any of you have any ideas, favorite brands, equipment and shelving that has worked well for you, cheap solutions, things I can't live without...I'd love to hear them.  Thanks so much in advance!

<DIV>Staci: after you&nbsp;make your supply order, consider making a cool looking newsletter to the parents introducing yourself and your upcoming program.&nbsp; And highlight "things that money can't buy"&nbsp; My parents are so wonderful for sending in yarn and cloth remnants, ribbon, fancy paper and so on.&nbsp;&nbsp;Some contributions go very quietly into the&nbsp;trash, but most of them are life savers and stimulants to the art program.&nbsp; We artists are scroungers, aren't we!&nbsp; Actually the ART EDUCATION artical referenced earlier by George Szekely, has a large focus on students bringing in their own art media.&nbsp; I recommend that for summer reading and inspiration.&nbsp; And by the way, if you write to George (I think his&nbsp;email is at the end of the article) he will mail you a copy of the video for free.&nbsp;It is wonderful.</DIV>

Subject: Re: RE:[teacherartexchange] New teacher here!
This will be the easiest year for you to purchase supplies, as schools tend to be more supportive of new teachers and new programs. What I do every year is go page by page through each catalog, writing down what supplies I want. When I start working within my budget I start chopping my "wants" until I have hit my budget. I ordered 30 watercolor trays, 30 oil pastel sets (I love the Crayola oil pastels - nice and thick and take alot of abuse), etc. My average class size is 24, with some years jumping to 28, so 30 gives me an extra or two. I love the Prang "Biggie" tempera cakes for ease of use, and cleanup, and the ability to purchase replacement cakes easily. I use these more than the watercolors, teaching my students to monitor their water usage for values. Order LOTS of colored paper - the colors I use the most are blue and black. Don't forget to purchase stuff like wiggly eyes, feathers, pompons, pipe cleaners, etc. Even if you don't have an immediate use for these you will discover a project mid-year where you will want these. Don't forget to order instuctional books, reproductions, check to see how you will access overhead projectors, etc, purchase a CD player now, and some CD's (Sax carries a nice starter selection). I like SAX True Colors liquid tempera, as well as the new Crayola II temperas. Order nice scissors now, and label them immediately!!! Paintbrushes are a must - for the little ones I like the chubby brushes, older kids I like the Crayola sets. Don't forget to stock your desk - my district expects you to purchase pens, paper clips, tape, etc. from your budget. Don't try to skimp on supplies - they will set your future budget by what you order now. :-)

Stacy,
I would be careful about what I included on the "wish list". Sometimes =
they think these things aren't really necessary. I would ask for all the =
equipment I thought I needed on one list. Then I would put together =
another for consumables that amounted to two to three thousand dollars. =
Give it to them and see what they say. They can always tell you later to =
cut back. I know they have what they call start up budgets that =
sometimes are pretty good. Good luck with the new position.

Hi Stacie, I am a K-8 art teacher at a small catholic school...i've never used easels, but one of the first things i got was a drying rack and use it all the time still...it's 18 years old!  make sure you get sinks the more the better, if they are still building. A parent donated a six foot long kitchen island with cabinets under i love it. a great working height with storage under neath.  ask for the moon, good luck and we are glad your here! carol

I love the Prang "Biggie" tempera cakes for ease of use, and cleanup, and the ability to purchase replacement cakes easily.

Don't forget to order instuctional books, reproductions, check to see how you will access overhead projectors, etc, purchase a CD player now, and some CD's (Sax carries a nice starter selection). I like SAX True Colors liquid tempera, as well as the new Crayola II
 temperas. Order nice scissors now, and label them immediately!!! Paintbrushes are a must - for the little ones I like the chubby brushes, older kids I like the Crayola sets. Don't forget to stock your desk - my district expects you to purchase pens, paper clips, tape, etc. from your budget. Don't try to skimp on supplies - they will set your future budget by what you order now. :-)

Thanks a lot.  They told me that the room is being built as a state of the art art room, so I'm hoping they have the sinks figured out!  I need to pick out a good drying rack.

<DIV class=AOLPlainTextBody id=AOLMsgPart_0_4563a2e4-8ad7-4b89-8663-db2c9a2a2ed0>This will be the easiest year for you to purchase supplies, as schools tend to be more supportive of new teachers and new programs. What I do every year is go page by page through each catalog, writing down what supplies I want. When I start working within my budget I start chopping my "wants" until I have hit my budget. I ordered 30 watercolor trays, 30 oil pastel sets (I love the Crayola oil pastels - nice and thick and take alot of abuse), etc. My average class size is 24, with some years jumping to 28, so 30 gives me an extra or two. I love the Prang "Biggie" tempera cakes for ease of use, and cleanup, and the ability to purchase replacement cakes easily. I use these more than the watercolors, teaching my students to monitor their water usage for values. Order LOTS of colored paper - the colors I use the most are blue and black. Don't forget to purchase stuff like wiggly eyes, feathers, pompons, pipe cleaners, etc. Even if you don't have an immediate use for these you will discover a project mid-year where you will want these. Don't forget to order instuctional books, reproductions, check to see how you will access overhead projectors, etc, purchase a CD player now, and some CD's (Sax carries a nice starter selection). I like SAX True Colors liquid tempera, as well as the new Crayola II temperas. Order nice scissors now, and label them immediately!!! Paintbrushes are a must - for the little ones I like the chubby brushes, older kids I like the Crayola sets. Don't forget to stock your desk - my district expects you to purchase pens, paper clips, tape, etc. from your budget. Don't try to skimp on supplies - they will set your future budget by what you order now. :-)&nbsp;<BR>&nbsp;<BR>&gt;&gt;Hi, I just signed up here. I have just been hired for my first teaching &gt;&gt;job...a K-8 art teacher at a new charter school. Because the school is &gt;&gt;new, and because I have no experience, I could use some help, really any &gt;&gt;advice at all...but right now I'm in the process of creating my supply &gt;&gt;list. I was given a catalog and asked to make a list. Right now, there &gt;&gt;is no equipment, no supplies. I am starting from scratch. It's kind of a &gt;&gt;daunting task. I'm having trouble even picking out paints and papers. If &gt;&gt;any of you have any ideas, favorite brands, equipment and shelving that &gt;&gt;has worked well for you, cheap solutions, things I can't live &gt;&gt;without...I'd love to hear them. Thanks so much in advance!&nbsp;<BR>&gt;&gt;&nbsp;<BR>&gt;&gt;Stacie&nbsp;<BR>&nbsp;<BR>&nbsp;<BR>---&nbsp;<BR>To unsubscribe go to http://www.getty.edu/education/teacherartexchange/unsubscribe.html&nbsp;<BR></DIV></DIV></DIV>--- <BR>To unsubscribe go to <BR>http://www.getty.edu/education/teacherartexchange/unsubscribe.html </BLOCKQUOTE></DIV>

Staci: Be sure that the school asks for "bid" pricing - it makes a huge 
difference -the prices on many items can be close to 40- 45% less than 
catalog price and shipping is always thrown in too (although some suppliers 
have better discounts than others).

Thanks.  I've been told my room will be blue and green.  They haven't really asked me about drawers, so I'm wondering if they will be provided.  I'm starting to worry because I've called twice this week to get more info, and they aren't returning my calls!  I'm sure they are nuts, but still...

Dear Colleagues,
I am considering using an art modules approach to  a
high school Graphics and Art Foundations Course.  As I
understand the concept, students move from one art
project area to the next, exploring a variety of
media, production techniques, art history, etc.  
I think I may start with three or four modules for the
first term.  I am thinking that the small groups and
the possibility of more in-depth work by the students
is attractive and could diminish some off task
behavior.  
If anyone on the list has experience working with this
approach please post me here or off list, especially
if this subject has come on list
before. Please share the pros or cons, module ideas(
projects), personal triumphs and challenges.
I will be teaching visual/media literacy in the Art
Foundations and/or Graphics classes next year.  I've
taught elements of the subjects at the post-secondary
level working with first year English students and
students in a Women's Studies course.  
At this writing the facilitation of the course
material will not be terribly different than that at
the post secondary level, but high school is a
different animal indeed.  
At any rate is there anyone on the list that has
taught visual/media literacy concepts in the high
school or post secondary art class?  I am in search of
 eadings,lessons/projects and syllabi that would be
appropriate for the high school art class and student
learner. Pleas post me on
or off list, off list if this subject has been covered
on list.  Thank you in advance for your reply.

Thanks.  I'm not sure how many students I will have in total.  I don't think they even know since it's a brandnew school.  The only thing I was told is that I will have no more than 25 students to a class.  I was looking at a lot of classpacks for paints, pencils, crayons, etc...but maybe I don't need that much?  See, this is why I feel like I don't know what I'm doing.  I don't even know how the tables will be set up to know how many students per table.

Congratulations on your new job, Stacie!  How many students will you have- that will help to figure out how much you'll need of supplies.  I get things like two watercolor pans per table, and then a couple of boxes of refill strips, for example.  Also, 4 qts of each color I need of tempera, but more of white is usually what I'll go through in a year. I have about 500 students and a pitiful budget. If I get low on supplies,  I turn to the donated supplies, or those supplied by the school to  help me get through.  
Whoever mentioned a rack- that's a critical item. I use two small ones, to fi the 12x18 paper.
Feel free to email me off list

Hi, I just signed up here.  I have just been hired for my first teaching job...a K-8 art teacher at a new charter school.  Because the school is new, and because I have no experience, I could use some help, really any advice at all...but right now I'm in the process of creating my supply list.  I was given a catalog and asked to make a list.  Right now, there is no equipment, no supplies.  I am starting from scratch.  It's kind of a daunting task.  I'm having trouble even picking out paints and papers.  If any of you have any ideas, favorite brands, equipment and shelving that has worked well for you, cheap solutions, things I can't live without...I'd love to hear them.  Thanks so much in advance!

I think "adbusters.org" is a great site to check out
if you're covering media literacy.   There may be some
other links that you find useful at my art-teacher
blog (listed below).
Good luck! That sounds fun.

I just got home from a luncheon and saw all the replies to
your post. I haven't read those yet, but this is a great place
for good advice. I'll suggest one supply for your older kids.
I taught middle level (6-8) and loved the soft creamy quality
of Crayola's Portfolio Series water-soluble oil pastels. The
pigments are quite rich for the price, under $8 for a set of 24.
We used them several ways and they wipe off tables with water.
One lesson was a combination of torn paper college, prang
watercolors and the oil pastels. I have it on line at:
http://www.taospaint.com/AdobeLesson.html
I'm retired now, but I have several lessons on the web that
you are welcome to look over:
http://www.taospaint.com/LessonIndex.html
Anyway, welcome to the list. You will find great people here,
ready and willing to share. They are also a great support
when things don't go quite right.

Stacie,
	If you have money (not PO's but cash) that you can spend, watch
Walmart near the start of the school year. They put crayola marker sets
on sale for like 98 cents (no limit). I used to buy 48 each fall.
Also, sale or not, never buy Rose Art anything (quality sucks).

Subject: Scale Model of a Sculpture Park
From: Arlen <arlens@yahoo.com>
Date: Wed, 8 Jun 2005 14:43:36 -0700 (PDT)
X-Message-Number: 35
Hi.
I recently created www.wickhamstonepark.com to show
the art of my grandfather E.T. Wickham. He was a folk
artist in Palmyra,Tennessee who created life-size
concrete statues of politicians,Indian chiefs,
and religious figures among others.
Sadly, most of the statues are now vandalized and
beyond restoration, but I have been wondering about
the possibility of creating a scale model of his park
in better times. With this in mind I recently surveyed
the site to get measurements for statue placements and
posted this information as well as current photos of
the statues to the website.
Does anyone here know of any resources for
scale-modeling a sculpture park? Might there be some
college art class that would be interested in taking
this on as a class project?
Thanks,
Arlen

Stacy,
	I don't know charters, but most districts have different
types of budgets. Art supplies, consumables, came from one pocket.
But equipment like a kiln, slab roller or printing press came
from another pocket. They seemed very willing to buy the big stuff
but were tight with consumables. Fortunately I've had lots of
understanding principals over the years. They knew the art program
ate supplies. Make the program strong and the building look good
and the supplies will come.
	I retired 2 years ago and moved 900 miles away, yet
my last principal visited our new home here in Albuquerque just this
past Monday. I hope you get a good, caring one, it's so important.
	Also begin to build up a back stock of supplies. My
art supervisor told me to have enough on hand to teach for
three years. The lean years will come so be ready. You might
not have just what you need but the stocked storeroom will
keep you teaching.

Hello Group,
I'm Bill in San Francisco.  I'm a computer artist with 4 books in 
print.  I use PhotoShop, Illustrator, Flash, Video Editing Programs and 
more Geek stuff.  About 600 schools have invited me in to present on how 
I write and manipulate images and create animations.  Now, for the year 
2005 to 2006 I'm making presentations via web conferencing. 
The presentations go very well, but many educators have never heard of 
it, nor tried it.  I'm wondering if anyone in the group that has 
experianced web conferencing could help me in giving me an idea that 
would help break this obsticle.
Any help would be good help.
Many Thanks,

Absolutely, Woody...excellent advice!  I just finished cleaning out my 
classrooms at school...and I was amazed at how much extra stuff I had 
accumulated.
I always wrote grants each year to get extra supplies.  I went from about 
about a $2,500 budget for supplies when I first moved to this school...down 
to $600/ year...but I was prepared....and I'm leaving the next teacher well 
prepared.
But, hey...we don't have to tell the administrators about this!  ...or 
they'd cut us back more!
And, BTW...all of you have shared such GREAT ideas for this new teacher!

Stacie, you'll be fine!!  knowing that you have 25 in a class is very =

you'll want to order more than in a normal year.  If you are ordering =

Some  things that you'll need,( but I'm sure that I'll probably forget =

Even though they said no more than 25 to a class, I would get 30 of the =

Hi, Stacie!

placement had one, and it was great!  However, when I opened my art =
room, I chose a printing press as my "big ticket" purchase, and have =
always used the old typeset racks that were left in our building (old =
vocational high school), retrofitted with pull-out shelves. =20
Good luck - have fun creating something new!

Hi, Arlen,
You might contact The Orange Show here in Houston, Texas.  It is a folk
art environment dedicated to, duh, oranges.  You would probably enjoy
it.
I know that they have helped out a friend of mine.  His grandfather had
a place called The Hyde Park Museum.  They assisted him with the
inventory and storage of works when the building they had been housed in
was sold.  They also take care of the Beer Can House.  Their specialty
is folk art.  They also sponsor our Art Car Parade.  
They can probably hook you up with someone who can help you out.  Who
knows, maybe they can do more!
You can find them on the web at http://www.orangeshow.org/ 
Good luck and I really enjoyed your website.  Your grandfather was truly
extraordinary.
Jean King

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Scale Model of a Sculpture Park
Hi.
I recently created www.wickhamstonepark.com to show
the art of my grandfather E.T. Wickham. He was a folk
artist in Palmyra,Tennessee who created life-size
concrete statues of politicians,Indian chiefs,
and religious figures among others.
Sadly, most of the statues are now vandalized and
beyond restoration, but I have been wondering about
the possibility of creating a scale model of his park
in better times. With this in mind I recently surveyed
the site to get measurements for statue placements and
posted this information as well as current photos of
the statues to the website.
Does anyone here know of any resources for
scale-modeling a sculpture park? Might there be some
college art class that would be interested in taking
this on as a class project?
Thanks,
Arlen
