What usually comes in the mail? Bills and junk, then more bills, and more junk. But, yesterday I was sent a review copy that my dvd "Painting a Butterfly" was given in Arts&Activities Magazine. Hellloo good news in the mail!
I loved this magazine already, and now even more. The reviewer clearly understood my intent, when creating this dvd, that art is a subject that can be integrated with other subject areas. She, or he, wrote, "...The presentation would be of equal value to art teachers and science teachers, as well as elementary classroom teachers responsible for their entire curriculum......The science lab tour explains how they grow vairious creatures to supply school science departments' requests. It is an interesting behind-the-scenes look at a very unusual niche business.....The painting project uses a butterfly from the lab as the subject matter for a painting project that is designed around the pointillism style of Georges Seurat....."
Here's the full review, on page 50.
