As I redesign my website, I have decided to get rid of the "Must Read" section on my homepage and add it back to the blog section. With my thesis and knitting schedule, I wasn't keeping up with it as well as I had unrealistically hoped (as you may have noticed since I haven't touched it since November!! I blame Trump). The plan now is to write a post about reads, blogs and/or listens every so often on here. ( I would say monthly but I am trying to take off the rose tinted glasses)
1. How to teach children to care about Art:
After a summer of teaching children about art as a world class museum, I found this an interesting article with tips and tricks for parents that could have been written by any museum educator.

This is probably one of the best tools Google has done for the arts. Ever.

Sometimes museums get it right and hang the art that society needs to see. Check out this powerful Faith Ringgold.

You know who I am talking about. Beware of the facades, the hypocrites and the sneaky. Also Everydayfeminism posts great things always.

You may have noticed the feminist lence that most of my posts have taken lately. Rachel Held Evans explains it all with bluntness, and poise.
7. Object Lesson
I wish I could make it to New York to see this show, exploring the meaning and worth of objects through collections.
8. How do Working Artists stay creative?
This article serves as both an informative interview and a book review, that is sure to be on my Christmas wish list.

This course outline that has been opened to the public is full of quality reads, videos and sources of learning about systemic, societal structures.
