If you will give me your snail mail address, I will send you a
packet of materials that Nancy Walkup developed for the North
Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts. A local
teacher does "living paintings" every year in Denton, and the
packet includes an article about her, worksheets on developing
an interdisciplinary art lesson, and Content and Achievement
Standards for the areas of visual art, music, drama, and theatre
which can serve as a guide for developing living paintings which
meet the needs of the participating arts areas.
