Hi! I am studying an Ma in Curatorship and Modern Art with the University of Sydney and this year I am in Mexico doing the  internship component at the instituto Cultural Cabañas in Guadalajara... For one of my internship projects I will be giving a 7 hour course on Art Appreciation to the non-arty museum personnel and will be basing my lectures on 20th century art. I wonder if i can utilize your website teaching resources and if you can give me any tips? Thank you in advance! Cara
