This week Urban Arts Academy didn’t meet on Monday, as the students had the week off, I didn’t meet with Krista Pearson from MIA either, as she decided we would meet later this month with an artist from All My Relations Gallery.
I met with Lynda to discuss ideas for my teaching lesson at Urban Arts Academy, and we discussed various ways to integrate an arts lesson into the student’s at UAA’s curriculum. As a Print, Paper, Book major, we discussed various ways to incorporate forms of printmaking or bookmaking into a lesson with the students. I emailed Katie and also asked who the artist of the month for the month I will be teaching will be. The artist is a sculptor who works in mixed media with objects to create dimensional forms—usually human forms. Katie mentioned that he is known for carving into bowling balls, something I feel may be translatable into a form of print!
I will talk more with Katie this upcoming week about what she thinks may be a good idea and then will begin to write a lesson plan and nail down what I will be working with the students on.
