  • How Project Talk Works


    The goal of Project Talk is to share ideas so that we can better teach the projects to our student artists.

    Project Talk is organized by project. Please post your comments within the forum for the project your interested in.

    For each project, posts will provide a project description, the originating artist’s notes and instructions, as well as examples, supply lists, and additional background information. The school ATGO chair will then post a lesson plan.

    With that info posted, discussion can begin.

    Please feel free to:

    Ask questions or seek clarifications regarding the project

    Suggest changes to the lesson plan

    Share your ideas and experiences teaching the project

    Tell us what worked for you, and what didn’t

    Post photos of student and docent artwork

    Provide updated lesson plans

    Express your opinions about the project

    Generally discuss the project
