10-noon: speakers and tour of current exhibitions at the museum
1:30-3:30pm: workshops based on ART and: teaching materials
In its second year, ART and: --an acclaimed program that embodies an
arts partnership with the schools--continues to offers a
multidisciplinary approach to incorporating art, the state standards,
and culture into the classroom. The ART and: program embodies a support
system that fosters beneficial results for students.
ART and: books, produced by the museum, provide pertinent information
about art education in general, the museum's programs, community
initiatives, and a series of lesson plans. Based on current and upcoming
exhibitions, the lesson plans emphasize the link that can be made
between art and the core disciplines--math, language arts, social
studies, and science. These books are free while supplies last.
The key speaker for this Fall event is Patty Taylor, Visual and
Performing Arts Coordinator for the California Department of Education.
She is a co-developer of California's Content Standards for the Visual
and Performing Arts and is director of the Model Arts Program Network
involving forty school districts throughout the State.
SMMoA education director, Asuka Hisa, will also introduce Wall Works, a
new project with the museum involving school groups and organizations in
the production of three commissioned public art projects in
collaboration with a recognized Los Angeles fine artist. Wall Works will
begin this fall with artists Alison Saar and Harry Gamboa, Jr.. Learn
