Dana Evans

is an artist educator who feels strongly about the power of art. As a pre-service art educator under Carol Ober at Newton South High School Media Lab, and R. Barry Shauck from Boston University, Dana wanted international exposure for her students. Dana comments: "I highly recommend the flag project. Students experienced 'runaway learning' (Thornton, 2002) about engaging an audience, Adobe Flash® animation and the dynamics of international relations. A quantum interdisciplinary project that is worthy of museums worldwide."
