Scope and Content Note


Most of these records pertain to Rice's role as Senior Curator of Education, and consist primarily of program materials used in the Museum's teachers' workshop known as VAST (Visual Arts as Sources for Teaching). Offered every summer, VAST is an intensive two-week program for teachers of all grades and subject areas, and designed to encourage 60 participants to immerse themselves in the Museum's collections and explore the use of art as a resource in the classroom. Also included in this record group are lecture materials, publications and papers pertaining to other museum projects, such as training for new guides.
