Abstract

Working with multiple curators at the Sheldon Art Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, I had an opportunity to contribute in the creation of educational resources on the museum’s website that are available for access by teachers grades K-12 in order to find information about artworks that can contribute to their lesson plans. With a goal of providing teachers and student’s artwork that resembles their surroundings and their culture, artworks were selected from the Regionalist movement, a period in art that focused primarily on tight compositions and rural themes. These works were then integrated into a museum designed lesson plan that is available for free access to all educators. It is the goal of these “education packets” to provide the needed resources for teachers, no matter the distance or cost restraints. The works selected for this project may also be used in a exhibition of Regionalist works scheduled for this summer.
