The Ackland Art Museum, http://www.ackland.org/ University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The Ackland Art Museum's collection offers teachers a broad range of programs and materials that support the development of their and their students' skills and interests. A varied selection of teacher workshops help teachers learn and create new ways of using works of art to improve their students' writing, critical-thinking, and other skills. Materials based on works of art in the Ackland's collection emphasize object-based learning. Teachers may schedule visits to the museum for their students, participate in Mini-Workshops for Busy Teachers and summer workshops, and borrow slides, videotapes and curriculum kits on Asia. The "Five Faiths Project," a multiyear initiative with the goal of using the Ackland Art Museum's collection of religious art as a starting point for helping people explore five of the world's great religions--Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism will include a variety of activities, will begin in the Spring of 2000. This project will include an educational web site.
