  • Since 1970, the Connecticut Commission on the Arts has sponsored educational programs in which artists participate actively in the classroom with students and teachers. This book contains eight case studies showing the effects of visiting artists in eight Connecticut schools. Topics of these studies are song writing, dance movement in suburbia, art as a natural element, talking drums, a 30-day musical jam session, caustic merriment, creating an alternate school, and an interdisciplinary improvisation. Three additional chapters discuss efforts to develop longer term residencies for artists in two schools; the successes and failures of the new Poets in Colleges program; and the function, needs, and programs of artists assigned to schools. An annotated list of the participants is included. (JM)
