Art Advocacy Mid-Winter Break Ideas!

Is this a vacation week for you?  Rest and recharge, as Youth Art Month is less than two weeks away.  If you cannot get away for a vacation, plan how you can use some of these virtual art trips, for your students to experience artwork from both around the world, and close to home. 
Visit an online museum or build your own collection of artworks.  (Art Institute of Chicago has a build-your-own collection feature.)
Arrange an Artist in Residence Program during March, by inviting in local community artists to demonstrate and/or talk to students.  Are there local museums nearby?  Set up a visit, and if area artists have work present, try to arrange it so that they can be present to discuss their work with your students.
