March 24th 2017

Pay It Forward in museums? Hello!  Does anyone know of any Pay It Forward type of programs at a tourist destination that charges admission? We're exploring the possibility of Pay It Forward with our admission for visitors who can't afford the general admission.

Re: Youth and Family Rewards Programs

March 23rd 2017

Hi Amy, You might talk to the High Museum in Atlanta. When AAM was down there a couple of years ago, I went to a presentation about how they (and several other museums in the area) partnered with artists and preschools, and part of the (grant-funded, as I recall) program was that each preschool was given a set number of family memberships so that the children could visit the museums with their families and not just on school visits. Good luck! ~Kelly Gwynn Educator Alaska Aviation Muse ...Continue Reading

Issues with posting

March 22nd 2017

Hi,   I recently posted to the list and my message had a note at the top that “This sender failed our fraud detection checks and may not be who they appear to be.” I’ve been posting to the list for years and this is the first time this has ever come up.

RE: Inquiry learning articles

March 20th 2017

Hello All, A book I really like is “Questioning Art: An Inquiry Approach to Teaching Art Appreciation” by Alan Gartenhaus.  It features images from the Wichita Art Museum alongside example questions.  It’s excellent, but maybe out of print?  Our librarian was unable to buy it.  You might find it in a library, though. Take care, Sara Van Note */Museum Educator/Volunteer Coordinator/* Office 505.476.5075    [email protected] */The art and soul of New Mexico/*  lik ...Continue Reading
