The top site has to do with a film about Japanese soldiers.

The second site is about ukiyo-e wood-cut prints of Sino-Japanese war

Of 1894-1895 and the Russo-Japanese war of 1904-1905 are usually

Called War Prints by collectors. What you wrote sounds Japanese.

Maybe this can be a starting point for a search.

Dear Teacher Art Exchange Members,

 

Kimberly is unable to get her post to come through. She will be doing

A presentation on Artsonia at the Illinois Art Ed Conference.

 

From Kimberly

 

Hello everyone,

 

I just got notice that my presentation proposal for the 2006 IAEA

Conference was accepted! I'm very excited but also very nervous. I

Have never presented at a conference before.

 

My presentation is all about the Artsonia and its many advantages. If

Any of you have suggestions on presenting at conferences I would love

To hear from you. I could also use some suggestions, comments, tips

And tricks, etc. From all you Artsonia teachers. I know you're out

There; what positive feedback have you gotten for your participation

In Artsonia. Do you have any suggestions for what I should include in

my presentation. Maybe you have the best/fastest way to go about

publishing work to Artsonia, getting others to help out with the

program or getting the word out about your Artsonia gallery. I would

greatly appreciate you sharing any of those or others.

 

Well, I had better get to work. Wish me luck on my first-ever

conference presentation.

 

Sincerely,

Kimberly Butts

If anyone has suggestions for Kimberly, you may post to the list - or

contact her off list at kimberly_hutts at yahoo.com. If you post to

Beth,

 

Yes! His name is Do-Ho Suh and he is a South Korean artist active in

Germany and the US. He was in the 2001 Venice Bienale representing

Korea and is in Art 21 Season 2. There was an AMAZING exhibition of

his work at the Seattle Art Museum - you can find info at

http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/exhibit/exhibitDetail.asp?

WHEN=PAST&eventID=2917

Also, there is a lot of information on him when you Google his name.

His work uses a variety of media including dog tags, small army men

(holding up a thick pierce of plexi you can walk) on, and silk, among

others.

Subject: Austin Art Teacher fired over photos

I saw this on CNN a couple of days ago and I'm

surprised that no one is talking about this on this

list, so I thought I would bring it to your attention

in case you hadn't heard about it.

 

The story is about Tamara Hoover an art teacher in

Austin who has been fired over some photos of her that

were posted online.

 

Here's a link to the article.

 

http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/06/16/naked.teacher.ap/index.html

 

I'll be interested to hear what you all have to say

about this. I'm a first year teacher and I have some

gender based work that isn't appropriate for my

students (elementary level) to see, so I'm curious as

to whether or not this is going to be an issue, or has

been an issue for other teachers.

 

One thing that I found especially interesting was the

"higher moral standard" expected of elementary

teachers. Apparently there is a "moral turpitude"

clause in the language of the teacher's contracts in

Austin that is at the crux of the matter.

 

I wonder if there be as much of an issue if these were

photos that she took of someone else, or is it that

she's a female teacher and the photos are of her?

 

Just wondering what you thought and if you've ever had

problems with your art work conflicting with your role

as an art teacher.

If she were a university art professor it wouldn't be

an issue.

My husband has long laughed at me over these last 30 years because I have

minded my p's and q's to the extent that I will not even go into a liquor

store and buy liquor lest someone in the community see me coming out with a

case of beer for him, since I don't even drink!. I used to teach in the

community in which I live (for the last 20 years my job is 12 miles from

where I live). I believe that no matter what you may think, you will always

be seen as "little suzy's" art teacher. I believe that there are those

people who will think I am looney enough by the way I dress, and the way I

teach, that anything as innocent as buying a case of beer can make the

rounds of the neighborhood to change me into an alcoholic in the cultural

game of "telephone". Now fast forward to the art teacher in Austin who had

nude pix of herself on the web. My husband and I discussed it. We needed

more information. Are these part of an art statement? Are these private

photos? Are these revenge photos (i.e. posted by an ex?) If these are part

of a larger art statement, is the statement evident, are the photos in

context? Did she in fact sign a contract that had a moral stipulation? I

would think it would be hard for her to teach after the revelation of the

photos, whether art or not, because people (young and old alike) will always

be looking at her with xray glasses.

 

just my random thoughts

Chris,

 

I heard of this too and was thinking of raising the issue.

 

I don't think she should be fired as long as she did not tell the

students that the pictures of her were on line. But this is an example

of how people may be putting too much personal info on the web without

thinking about who is looking. This case also reflects the direction

our country is heading in these days.

 

There are many college art professors that are doing gender based work

and exploring all kinds of sexual imagery. It seems that in college it

is OK but not in a K-12 environment. I understand that if K-12

students come across "naked pictures of their teacher" it could create

quite a stir in a k - 12 situation. One could argue that it interferes

with education but teachers do have rights outside of the school

environment and those rights should be protected.

 

This case could wind up going to the Supreme Court.

"back in the day" i had to take "teachers and the

law", one of the best courses and best profs i've ever

experienced. if this is the full story and she was a

truly a good teacher being unfairly persecuted because

of her personal, private activities i'd contribute to

her defense and simultaneously advise her to flee such

a repressive, backwards environment. there are places

close to me that still ban books! eeks. i believe

one of the cases we studied in class involved an

elementary teacher being dismissed because she was

visibly pregnant and that, at the time, was considered

immoral or something; teachers in that condition were

expected to stay home and away from impressionable

young minds?!? on the flip side, i acknowledge that

*i* live in the real world, and am pretty darned

careful about what i share publicly. i guess i love

my job more than pretending i have absolute freedom.

sad, but true.

This issue was talked about pretty extensively on the

art education list. The issue developed when she and

another art teacher had an arguement over art

equipment. The other art teacher was complaining to

students and the students told her that if she really

wanted to get even with Ms. Hoover that she should

tell about the photos online.

The photos were various nude/topless casual

shots..some involving her and her girlfriend, who was

also the photographer, together. One was of them

together in the tub. They were all posted by the

girlfriend. So, the other art teacher had the students

show her the photos from her classroom computer and

then told the administration about the photos. Ms.

Hoover was removed from her classroom and told that

she was no longer an efficient teacher- despite being

recognized by the school board recently for being an

outstanding teacher.

 

I think that she was wrong for not thinking more

clearly about public opinion and her position as a

teacher. BUT the what is really getting me here is the

other art teacher who viewed the photos and used them

to get even -all with students involved in the

process.

 

i found all this out by typing in tamara hoover in

google and then following the trail from there. it is

just a sad story to me from beginning to end. - Mikel

I taught a high school graphic design course last year

and had the students alter an existing logo for a food

product.

 

The students had to research the benefits and

disadvantages of the product and use that data and

data on the corporation that produced/sold the product

to inform their altered logo design.

 

The result in many cases was a

tongue-in-cheek/satirical twist in the re-illustration

of the of the logo. One student researched a popular

orange soda and found that the consumption of soda can

make one bones brittle. The log then took on a

brittled, cracking , fissure filled appearance and the

color shifted to a more neutral palette.

 

This was a great lesson and students at the middle

school level could pull thi project off.
