Classroom Considerations
  • Alas, while student samples and works by Kirkland are included in the packet, the instructor will need to collect from the Internet images produced by other artists
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
  • The 19-slide PowerPoint presentation includes images of Kirkland's paintings, a brief biography, student samples, and a recreated image of Kirkland's painting straps
  • The plan is richly detailed and includes links to related resources
  • No samples of aboriginal dot art are included in the packet
