Professional development through the advanced planning of themed exhibitions provides art instructors in Howard County the impetus for many art problems. This art problem, centered on the art and writing contained in the storybooks of Holly Hobbie. In late summer, the art teaching staff of the Howard County Public School System gathered at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC for an in-service to kick-off the new school year. Plans had been made to share the permanent collection, along with resources related to Artists on the Road, an exhibition curated by Krystyna Wasserman. Catalogs from the show were provided for all teachers, and museum staff and consultants offered breakout sessions to inspire teachers' ideas for a show of student work to be held the following spring. Consultants included: Audra Price, an art teacher in Howard County who conducted a workshop entitled Postcards from the Edge. Students completed illustrations using watercolor and thin black line in the style of Holly Hobbie.
