Alaska Masterworks featuring David Mollett, Sheila Wyne, Donny Varnell
In 2008 AAEC produced three arts education posters with the help of a matching grant from the Alaska State Council on the Art.
We selected three contemporary Alaskan artists and their artworks to provide teachers with a colorful poster and activities for all grade levels to stir interest in the visual arts. The artists are Alaskans who have produced a significant body of recognized work and who are interested in sharing it with students.
Download the back of each poster for information on the Artist, Artwork, Ways to Respond to Artwork, Activities, Alaska Standards, Lessons Online, and Art Vocabulary.
We welcome comments about these posters and any ideas you have for other projects to help increase the arts in classroom.
