Art Education in Action: School-Museum Collaboration. Episode A: Focus on Original Art and Episode B: Interacting with a Contemporary Artist.
Getty Center for Education in the Arts, Los Angeles, CA.
This guide and accompanying videotape are the fifth and final in a series that present full lessons and interviews with the instructors who created the lessons. Intended as starting points to stimulate thinking about a comprehensive approach to art education, these instructors discuss how they developed their lessons and how this approach has positively impacted their teaching and their students' capacity for learning. These materials focus on school-museum collaborations and highlight a program at the John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida. Working hand-in-hand, classroom teachers and curators engage students not only in analyzing and interpreting original works of art, but also in conbributing creative artifacts to exhibit installations. Divided into two parts, Episode A takes a look at Susan Mudle's fourth-grade class' field trip and the way the students compare/contrast two Dutch paintings. Episode B follows art teacher Patricia Johnston's high school class as she leads them on a directed study adventure exploring the life and works of contemporary artist Eric Fischl. After extensive research, this class' adventure culminates in a face-to-face dialogue with the artist himself, surrounded by his work at the museum. (DQE)
