Art Resources Available to STELLAR Teachers

posted Nov 4, 2015, 1:00 PM by Eric Tuck

We have some wonderful opportunities for engaging with the arts, in and out of classrooms.

 

The Lane Arts Council offers a high-quality arts education program that allows schools to request an artist for performance assemblies, after-school programs, and artist residencies. Each district has $1,000 per year to cover the artists’ travel and expenses. If you are interested in reserving an artist for your school, we encourage you to coordinate with your colleagues to maximize the number of students who will be able to participate.

 

If you would like to schedule an artist to visit your school, please contact Rachel Cameron atrcameron@uoregon.edu with your preferred dates and artist, and she will make the arrangements.  Visit http://lanearts.org/artists/ to see a list of participating artists.

 

STELLAR teachers also receive a free classroom visit to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.Visit http://jsma.uoregon.edu/guided-school-tours and schedule your visit as soon as possible. Contact JSMA Tour Coordinator Jo Morton at jsmatour@uoregon.edu or (541) 346-0910. Be sure to mention it’s a STELLAR visit.

 

Finally, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art offers Outreach Kits containing curriculum resources, artifacts, and reproductions from the museum’s collection. The kits are available for three-week loans for no charge. Kit topics include China, the Chinese Cultural Revolution,Japan, and Korea.
