Dr. Juliet Hacking. Dr. Hacking is the Programme Director of the MA in Photography (Contemporary and Historical) at Sotheby's Institute of Art in London. The MA is unique in that it allows students to study photography entirely as a branch of art history and visual culture, while also developing their skills of professional practice (as curators, gallerists etc). . Juliet joined the Institute in 2006 from Sotheby's auction house (London) where she was the Head of the Photographs Department (from 2003). Prior to joining the auction house as a cataloguer in 2000, she worked as a researcher at the National Portrait Gallery (London). She was the curator of the N.P.G. exhibition Princes of Victorian Bohemia: Photographs by David Wilkie Wynfield and wrote the accompanying book (NPG/Prestel 2000). She trained as an art historian at the Courtauld Institute (B.A., M.A., PhD) specialising in nineteenth-century British photography, and has taught as a Visiting Lecturer at the Universities of Derby and Reading and at the Courtauld Institute.

best art activity?
Hi Art instructors!

I was hoping we could share a few great art/art ed activities for college students. As for me, here are a few that worked well:

*having students collect natural objects (corn, apples, leaves) and list other objects that are similar in texture, size, shape, color. Then they create an entirely new composition using their secondary list - so that hair could be made of corn, etc.
*having students pretend a work of art must be moved and so they create a new space for it and collage, draw, or paint the work into a new space.
*having students make prints with vegetables and other objects to create a motif
*having students create a functional musical instrument (bottles for tones, etc)

I have a lot of vinyl records. I was thinking about painting all of them white and letting the students paint them how they want. I think it needs more instruction though. Is there an artist who paints on records that I could teach them about or maybe some type of technique? Any suggestions on how I can build up on this idea?

I'm a substitute teacher and I'm looking for ideas for elementary school. I'm looking for something that involves only paper and pencil, so some type of drawing activity would be nice. Any suggestions?

A Quick Question
I need help identifying a painting. Does anyone here know what painting this is or who the artist is?

An Experiment
Am I the only one who pines away in isolation at a remote college, dying to talk to others about the challenges of teaching and the dismal job market?

Are there others out there teaching a particluar course for the first time, and sort of winging it?

Am I the only one who, for the first time in her (admittedly short) teaching career, is facing the challenge of mediocre or uninterested students?
