Dear Anne,

I recently stumbled onto a great source of interesting ideas for
teaching a deeper understanding of art objects, their makers and cultural
roots. These projects include creative re-enactment of historic artworks,
situational drama, brain-storming, and dozens of other ideas to make art
history memorable for students from grade one through university. I have
based lessons on some of these projects with great results. Look into it,
enjoy and good luck!
