"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
Art21 has distributed all remaining copies of the Season Five Educators' Guide and is not accepting requests at this time. Thanks to all of the educators who have ordered the guide and use it in their classrooms.
The Season Five Educators' Guide can be downloaded as PDF files: the entire guide, by thematic section, and by individual artist.
