Digging into the Archives
The beginning of the second week of classes and more matches have been made! The documenting and photographing of the works of art are wrapping up and students have begun to dig into the archival information. Newspaper clippings, letters, and other writings, along with the massive collection of photographs from Aller's archives hold a wealth of information that we hope will help to contextualize the children's paintings. Beyond that, what they have to say about Aller himself and his teaching methods and philosophies will be invaluable in the exhibition of the children's paintings.
