Series 7: Teaching and Workshop Files , 1932-1982, undated
(box 18; 0.5 linear ft.)

The material in this series primarily reflects Sheets's teaching activities in an academic setting and his role as an instructor through specialized art workshops. Although Sheets was a professor for many years at Scripps College, few of his academic records from that institution can be found in this collection.
The series is organized into two subseries:
  • 7.1: Teaching Positions and Seminars, 1932-1982, undated
  • 7.2: Workshops, 1952, 1964-1982, undated
Teaching and workshop files are on reels 5700-5701.
7.1: Teaching Positions and Seminars, 1932-1982, undated
The files in 7.1 predominantly reflect short term teaching/lectures given at various Western universities or colleges.

7.2: Workshops, 1952, 1964-1982, undated
The files in 7.2 document Sheets's extensive teaching experience as a painting instructor, as evidenced through the numerous workshops he led in the Western United States and Mexico, as well as throughout the world. Researchers will find it useful to also peruse Series 8: Painting trips, 1959-1980, undated for related personal painting trips that often followed Sheets's workshops.
