Create Your State
Dunham, Kris; Melvin, Samantha
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v110 n5 p42-43 Jan 2011
Students are often encouraged to work together with their classmates, sometimes with other classes, occasionally with kids at other schools, but rarely with kids across the country. In this article the authors describe the Create Your State project, a collaborative nationwide project inspired by the Texas Chair Project wherein the artist, Damien Priour, sent 100 small chairs he created to 100 Texas artists asking for them to create a chair in return. The Create Your State project ended up with 133 participating schools from all 50 states with more than 7,000 participating students. The final project was a full-color book featuring a page for each participating school with their artworks, statements, and optional photos, plus two collaborative maps. (Contains 1 online resource.)
