A strong rural arts project should be collaborative. Collaborative projects accommodate diverse needs and agendas, develop non-school project advocates, are sustained by and rely on several sources, and strengthen communities. Because local artists are accessible, have a special commitment to improving education in their communities, and understand community traditions, they should be involved in collaborative art endeavors. This handbook presents models and suggestions for creating collaborative local art education programs. The book's nine chapters each suggest a stage in the creative process. Guide Sheets throughout, summarize useful information. Chapter 1 lays out the organization of the book and provides a brief word glossary. Chapter 2 gives practical suggestions, with examples, about gathering ideas and people together. Chapter 3 indicates a number of ways to gather personal and institutional support and build a project network. Chapter 4 offers suggestions for an effective and inclusive process for planning and management. Chapter 5 explains that outcomes define what will happen as a result of the project. Some outcomes are clearly measurable, others will be harder to assess. Both types are important. Chapter 6 discusses budgeting and financing. Chapter 7 describes nine management procedures which can ensure a Positive Experience. Chapter 8 deals with the ongoing processes of project management. Chapter 9 focuses on approaches to sharing the success of the project with students, parents, project planners, community members, and the general public. Each chapter concludes with brief recommendations for reading the chapter topic in greater detail. (MM)
