I had been trying to collect transparencies of famous art works so that
I wouldn't have to use posters that get bent, torn and take up precious
wall space. I purchased the Millican (sp.) series and they wetted an
appetite for more.
In talking to my friend, Mary- a PSL(a drop out prevention program)
and English teacher, she said that English teachers have transparency
packets that include famous art works. I put an all call out to any
teacher that didn't use the transparencies in their program and received
a complete packet from the English department. Wonderful art work by
both well known and lesser known artists- there were close to 100
transparencies from years of different English books and samples sent to
the school to review.
Later a social studies teacher asked if I would like the
transparencies from their old text book. I received another packet full
of transparencies of historic artifacts and treasures from Egypt through
the Civil War.
Check with your schools for the hidden treasures available. Call the
county office to see if they have some sample packets available. I have
since helped academic teacher use the transparencies more often in their
classrooms. By helping them see the link between art and their
subjects, the hidden treasures continue to people who share things and
