Study Saturday at the Mountain!

Anxious about the upcoming AP Art History exam?  Want to spend Earth Day outside?  Well, then, you should come to our Saturday study session tomorrow (April 22nd) from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.  We’ll be going over major artistic movements, formal analysis skills, contextualization, and chronology.  You should plan on bringing:

  • Your field notebooks! (I told you they’d be useful.)
  • Sunscreen
  • A blanket or towel to sit on
  • Snacks
  • Water bottle
  • Frisbees, maybe? We’ll take breaks, I promise.

This will be a drop-in, drop-out session, so don’t worry if you can’t come for the whole session.  I’ll be there for the whole three hours, so feel free to drop by when you can.

DIRECTIONS!

Now.  Because it’s going to be a Saturday, we will NOT be trying to park anywhere near the visitors’ center of the park.  Instead, please park at the lot on Old 41.  Then, follow the sidewalk up to the paved walking path (it’s the Noonday Creek trail– one that can take you to the visitors’ center), and TURN LEFT.  Walk across the bridge over the railroad tracks, and you’ll see an open field on your left.  That’s Activity Area 1, and that’s where I’ll be.  Check the tree line– I’m gonna stake out some shade, for I am pale and the sun is frightening.

And if you need specifics, go here and get directions to the Old 41 parking lot for Kennesaw Mountain park from your house!

And remember, if you have a hard time finding me, send me a note via Remind– I’ll definitely have my phone on me.

And remember– just because Frank Lloyd Wright can design a masterwork of American architecture in two hours doesn’t mean that’s a good model for academic success.
