While I am up in the middle of the night in the wee hours doing research
(ahhh the life of the grad art granny is never a dull one ;), I ran
across this and thought I would just pass this little tidbit along in
hopes that it might be a useful resource for someone.



The Southeast Institute for Education in the Visual Arts
has developed several comprehensive study units
designed to provide both elementary and secondary
school students with an understanding of specific works
of art and art movements.

These discipline-based units are based on a single work
of art each. SIEVA provides poster reproductions for
each unit to participants. The units uses works of art
The Hunter Museum of American Art, The Montgomery
Museum of Fine Arts, The New Orleans Museum of Art,
and The Telfair Musuem of Art. Concepts and processes
are studied and explored through four methods of inquiry:
aesthetics, art history, art making, and art criticism. As
result of studying a unit, students should grow in their
ability to understand the cultural context of the work of
within history, to identify its aesthetic qualities, to
articulate their opinions regarding the quality,
and value of the work, and to create their own art.

The reproductions are high-quality, full-color images
printed on medium-weight poster stock and measure
22x28 inches in size. The following poster reproductions
are available as a set for $50.00, complemented by a
supporting discipline-based teacher's guide:

Alfred Jacob Miller's Trapper's Bride
Lilly Martin Spencer's Young Husband, First
David Parrish's Royal Chevy
Bill Traylor's Figures, Construction
David Bates's Grassy Lake
Edgar Degas's Portrait of Estelle Musson Degas
Elaine de Kooning's Baseball Players
Robert Gwathmey's Marketing
