Re: Adding to the IAD site
- List members (and Judy),
As some of you may know, my job has kept me too busy
to work on the IAD site any longer. (although I still
tinker with it occassionally) Because I had so many
e-mails from people saying they wanted the site left
up, I asked for a volunteer to maintain and add to the
site. Judy Decker graciously volunteered for this
position and has been working on it since then.
As an artist myself, I have decided to give Judy the
artistic freedom that artists need to change the site
as she sees fit. I encourage your input on the site to
improve IAD. Judy- This means that I don't mind you
adding or changing things on the site without my
permission. I consider the site in the public domain
although I do have a copywrite on it to keep it from
being used inappropriately. Teachers and students- I
encourage you to copy or use the lessons and other
material here to enhance your art education.
I'll use this note as a thank-you to Princetonol.com
for hosting IAD for free. The site has been bounced
around due to heavy traffic and hosting companies
shutting down. Princetonol saved it from shutting
down. I have placed a big banner for Princetonol on
the main page as thanks for letting us use their
(Sorry Ken Rohrer to mess with this page - but that is
what the Getty member suggested - I also put it on the
index page for that section - but that isn't what
comes up on the site).
Hope this helps. I welcome ALL suggestions on how to
improve the site - and I do what I can to meet those
P.S. for Ken if you are reading....He had more
suggestions....but those are for another time. Let's
see if this helps for now (smile). I will just tell
you that one was to put the Art Links pages as the
Resources button....but then there would not be a link
to my site. As far as I know, he is the only one who
has even mentioned the Art Links pages. You know why I
keep them there.

- Dear Ken and Judy,
I want to thank you both for IAD. My only regret
is that I didn't know about it years ago because it would have
helped to enrich my lesson planning and lesson plans even more than
it does today. I realize that this reads a bit sappy ( and I really
don't care) but as art teachers we can get very isolated from each
other. And we end up feeling like we have to re-invent the wheel
every time we sit down to plan for the next classes.
The school system where I work in MA, just
contracted three schools. We lost two part time art teachers. Many
people were reassigned to different schools and as a result and
morale within the department is the lowest I have ever witnessed. I
don't find that good feeling when we meet as a department. The hurt
and anger is thick.Thank you for the work to keep the site up and
thanks to everyone on the list for becomming my new support system.
