Things We Mention
Slides were added to the boxes instead of being checked out each month from the CMC. Schools were grouped geographically and began exchanging the boxes between them during the school year, rather than all of the materials going through the CMC librarian. School coordinators left the meeting with their assigned six artist boxes for the year and a huge stack of biographies, a copy for each of their volunteers. Bev Ecker, Greenway , was instrumental in developing many of these lessons and providing volunteer training.
Up until that time, each volunteer prepared their own lesson and then followed up with the coordinator suggested art activity. Over the summer, a team of volunteers reorganized and cleaned out the boxes.
