AK Masterworks Posters 2008

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.
