Visual Arts "Performance"

Here's an idea for Michal who asked what could be done to put more of an
emphasis on the art part of the Music and Art Show. Seems that the parents
just wander by the atwork on the way to the musical performance.
Consider setting up some demonstrations to correlate with the various
learning experiences on exhibit. This always serves many positive purposes.
It clarifies and connects the learning experiences and their results with the
process. It allows the product-orientated public( I want to say
administration) to better understand and appreciate the process. At the same
time there's something exciting about seeing that process. What parents would
miss seeing their child in this "Visual Arts Performance"?!
If you are able, I even suggest inviting the public to participate in a
hands-on activity also. A relatively easy and inexpensive activity is
monoprinting. You can use styro meat trays for plates. Another is crayon
resist. One year I set up students by their exhibits and had a variety of
these demos going on. When I involved the public in this hands-on, they were
standing in line to make their own. Carrying around their finished art, many
were asked, "Oooh, where did you get that?" That certainly provoked
interest! Good luck..hope this helps....Susan on Long Island
