Kindergarten Visual Art Training “Wolf Pup 101” International Wolf Center “For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.” - Rudyard Kipling “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely. Broad, wholesome, charitable views can not be acquired by vegetating in one’s little corner of earth.” - Mark Twain From Innocents Abroad, 1869 Two Visual Art Trainings in 2009-2010 • September 23rd – Kindergarten Level PLC with Amie Marquez • February 9th – Video-Conference: International Wolf Center with Tyson Ledgerwood School Wide Art Show 2009-2010 • The winners of the individual school art shows will be framed and displayed at the Western Heritage Museum on May 8th 2010. “The word art, derived from an ancient Indo-European root that means “to fit together,” suggests as much.

Resource Information • The International Wolf Center website has teacher resources at this link: http://www.wolf.org/wolves/learn/educator/edu_main.asp “Art is the cleverness of Odysseus; the intimate knowledge of materials in a sculpture by Renaissance master Benvenuto Cellini or a dress designed by Issey Miyake; the inventive genius of a Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, or computer visionary Douglas Englebart; the verbal craft in everything from an aphorism (“Time is Money”) to an oration (“Four Score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation”) to a commercial slogan (“Just Do It”). In short, art isn’t to be found only in galleries and museums; it is woven into the warp and woof of an entire civilization.” - Jeffrey J. Schnapp Director of Stanford Humanities Lab Stanford University “Art completes what nature cannot bring to finish.” - Aristotle Story time References • Images are from the website of the International Wolf Center.
