If any of you can get to LA during the correct week in the summer, the Museum of
Contemporary Art (MOCA) has an amazing program for teachers about contemporary
art. They call it "Contemporary Art Start." It's actually aimed at non-art
teachers to work modern art into their subjects, but I went as an art history
teacher and learned SO much. Most of the attendees are elementary school
students, but I found almost all of it useable for my AP (college-level)
high-school Art History class. Among other things, they gave everyone a book of
great lesson plans and about $300 worthof slides! The conference cost was, I
think, $15. If you're in LA they also have you bring your students to the
museum twice for special docent, interactive, tours, and they provide the bus
for the second trip!
