End of my first semester in one sentence.

Ethics: Connecting back to art education.

For the final project in this course I am exploring the possibility of having representatives present in a large scale art museum that will be available for visitors to discuss with about concepts in the art seen.

Social Theory:  Introducing, constructing and destructing everything... Oh and reading. (Theory got two sentences because it's that awesome.)

For Theory, I am creating a painting that represents the concept of trust in education.  It is large scale in order to cover as much of the topic as possible and have many routes for the viewer to explore.

CyberPedagogy:  Reminder of how behind I am in technology, but also becoming aware of a plethora of new resources and how to find new ones.

For the final project in this class, my group has compiled information on the best ways for the museum to communicate with educators and others.  The key items that we have found is that there is no best platform to use that will magically allow for open communication to happen, but rather it is the accessibility or involvement of the representatives of the museum that harbor conversation.

Art History:  Some days are drawn out but Yood comes across some really interesting aspects of art history that I may have never thought of.

No final project needed...YAY!

Society for Contemporary Art Internship:  'Excel-ing' anything and everything, mail-merging, enveloping, and museum office work. 

Chicago Children's Museum Internship:  Finding how my art education background can be used in a wide variety of areas that was never made knowledgeable to me before.  In such things as:  Designing and Creating portions of exhibits, creating lesson plans for special events, teaching art lessons, researching for exhibition teams, compiling summaries of adaptability found through out the museum and especially in the art studio for visitors that require them.
