I am working on putting together staff development for srts specialists this coming August and I am wondering:
Does anyone know of any wonderful speakers on classroom Management and behavior that applies specifically
to arts classrooms? Books would be good resources too.
I'd greatly appreciate any responses that you have.

> Dear Art Educators,
> Lotte Petricone has updated her web site. Check it out:
> See work by her co-workers too:
> http://www.ccsd.edu/ffms/Art/ >
> New projects added:
> A few ideas came from Art Education list and/or the IAD. The sixth
> grade page has cut paper portraits adapted from Marvin Bartel's site,
> slot sculptures from Dick Blick's site. The Traveling Landscapes is
> Lotte's original lesson - the webquest is there on the page.
> The seventh grade page has paper sculpture portraits that begin with
> paper masks that Lotte does in sixth grade, and evolved. The
> cardboard masks
> idea came from list posts - inspired by Eric Straw. Lotte says they
> were great to do and easier than most masks. Digital self-portraits
> are an IAD project (Jeannie Sandoval's lesson), and Exquisite Corpse
> came from list posts - were
> perfect for hard to teach seventh graders this year.
> The Eighth grade page has Wild Weather Landscapes that go with the
> webquest of the same name - a variation on the sixth grade one, and
> portraits. Lotte's 3-D People Sculpture paper mache lesson is on IAD.
> Cans were used this year along with recycled cardboard.
> Lotte's Cardboard Relief masks lesson is coming on Incredible Art
