- The Inside Out Project. I had my students participate in JR’s The Inside Out Project in an attempt to have students connect with contemporary art and with our community. This project gives everyone the opportunity to share their self-portrait and make a statement for what they stand. “It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.”
- Display Budgets. When cost constraints make presenting student work with traditional frames not possible, you have to find alternative ways to display. Learn of examples I’ve come across or used with my students.
- Advocacy. As teachers, visibility, showing student artwork, is one of our strongest forms of advocacy. Having students present their work in your building and throughout the community benefits them and contributes to the image of your program.
