> > Hi all, > I haven't posted in a long time. I currently have a problem that I am sure someone has a great idea for. Some background first. We are a small Lutheran School. I am the art specialist (I have a masters in art education, but I also teach other things.) We have been doing an Art Day for the last few years.
> Grades 1-8 do nothing but art for an entire day. I invite artist/ teachers to
> come for the day. We have presentations in the morning where they share their
> art forms, then in the afternoon, we divide the artists and the students up and
> have a hans-on project led by the visiting artists. The students love this day.
> It is a great way to promote the arts and art careers.

> > Now for my problem. Last year we couldn't host Art Day because all the art
> teachers I contacted couldn't take off or were afraid to take off with the cuts
> coming on. I am able to offer a small stipend ($300-500) and lunch for each
> artist who attends. I am looking for either artists who are interested in coming
> or suggestions of another way to run art day if I cannot find artists to come
> in. The students get tired of always hearing me. They love to get some new ideas
> from new persectives. Any thought would be greatly appreciated. We are located
> in Hollywood, Florida.
