NTIEVA's ArtLinks Study Print collection is a boxed set of 18"x24" fine art poster reproductions of twenty-five works of art, five each from our consortium's five area art museums. Made possible by a generous grant from the Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation, the prints were mounted, backed with reference information, and laminated for classroom use. A set of the prints was given to each school in NTIEVA's consortium.
Museum educators from the Amon Carter Museum (Allison Perkins), the Dallas Museum of Art (Gail Davitt and Aileen Horan), the Kimbell Art Museum (Marilyn Ingram), the Meadows Museum (Maria Teresa Garcia), and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (Linda Powell) worked with Nancy Berry, ArtLinks project director and NTIEVA consultant, to select the artworks and prepare related support materials.
Reference material on the back of each print includes information about the artist, subject, cultural context, and style, as well as formal, sensory, expressive, and technical properties appropriate to the work. Suggested discussion questions have been prepared by museum educators to guide students in higher order thinking skills as they explore artworks from many cultures and times. The reference material is also repeated in an accompanying user guide.
In addition, a teacher's guide was developed that includes lesson units, additional information about the artists and/or artworks, a time line, references, and other materials.
