Love to see the Arts in action.
I think that this type of performance art would be very unnerving to many people. I often have a hard time shutting down and relaxing.

It creates the costume for the performance.
This article is a great reference for making connections with students about relating contemporary culture with art.
My 8th graders are making ceramic fear and worry jars. We first discussed some common fears and worries of students their age and then created ceramic boxes and jars from slab and coil hand building techniques. They are looking very good!!
When my daughter was young we would go to as many museums and gallery openings as we could. We would make an event of it, getting dressed up and going to dinner then visiting the museum or gallery. We had a blast!
