A Couple of Art Advocacy Mid-Winter Break Ideas!

It is vacation week for many, or at least a long weekend for most!  Rest and recharge, as Youth Art month is less than two weeks away.  If you cannot get away for a vacation, use some of these virtual art trips for your students to experience artwork from around the world, and some from home. 
Visit an online museum or build your own online collection of artworks.  (Art Institute of Chicago has a  build your own collection feature.)

Hold an Artist in Residence Program during March - invite in local community artists to demonstrate and/or talk to students.  Do you have local museums nearby?  Set up a visit, and if area artists have work exhibited, try to arrange it so that they can be present to discuss the work with your students.
