NATA Members Are Very Busy Promoting Arts Education!
And now...Let's Plan Ahead!
Across the 500 miles of Nebraska, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of accomplished artists living and working. Here. Now. Each of their stories is unique. Our goal is to tell those stories within the context of the new Nebraska Fine Arts Educational Standards. Many video profiles of Nebraska artists and resources are available for teachers.
The project, which was initiated during 2007-08, featured five posters depicting works by critically acclaimed contemporary Nebraska artists Kent Bellows, Jun Kaneko, Karen Kunc, Keith Jacobshagen and Michael James. In collaboration with UNO's Center for Innovation in Arts Education, a comprehensive curriculum was developed for primary schools to support this project. The posters, which included educational resource material on the reverse, were then sent to all 1,413 Nebraska schools, covering both public and parochial institutions, and serving 326,153 students in all. The curriculum also included videos of the artists, which can be seen on this website and on NAC's YouTube Channel.
Over the past decade, ART21 has established itself as the preeminent chronicler of contemporary art and artists through its Peabody Award-winning biennial television series, Art in the Twenty-First Century. The nonprofit organization has used the power of digital media to introduce millions of people of all ages to contemporary art and artists and has created a new paradigm for teaching and learning about the creative process.
And now...Some $$$ To Get Those Ideas Off The Ground!
