I am commenting on the question, "How can we help make one time
visits or brief "art" experiences relevant in some kind of on-going way
for students?" This question is found in the section, panel #3 in "Art
and Ecology Curriculum Intergration."
My sister last year went to the DeGrazia museum here in Tucson and
she loved it. Her 8th grade class, saw a bunch of wonderful artworks that
everyone liked. She told me that the artworks were about what peoople
like to see, cartoon like figures and ideas. The artworks were very
colorrful and pretty. It was a great experience for her because she was
able to understand what the art work was about and the bright colors and
the cartoon-like figures made it more interesting.
Her experience is an example of how we can make a student's one
time visit meaningful and fun; by showing them what they like and what
they would like to see.
A project that a teacher can do afterwards is let the students
paint their own picture, maybe something similar to what they saw in
the museum.
