OK, this one's mostly for fun, and we're showing our age. Still, the online version of the famous drawing toy performs much as the original did. Try this one on your students as an example of what high tech was thirty years ago. Just don't try to clear your screen by turning it upside down and shaking it! Operate the game using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

tag(s): drawing (78)

In the Classroom

Have young ones practice left and right by working with a partner at classroom computers, with one partner directing "left" or "right, "up" or "down" while the other operates the keys. Together they can make a drawing! Older students will be amused by the simplicity. See what they can create with just one continuous line.

This site is a searchable archive of cartoons (both comics and editorials) available ONLY FOR USE IN THE CLASSROOM. It's a wonderful source of discussion starters and topical humor, but please read the copyright information carefully. Government and social studies teachers will find the editorial collections particularly interesting.

tag(s): air (163), comics and cartoons (74)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a means to search for political cartoons or cartoons that reflect upon current political events. Showing the image on the interactive whiteboard, use them as a springboard to have a class discussion on where we get information and biases from in the media. What is it that these artists are trying to say? Is humor more effective in getting a point across than text? A very interesting resource for a US government class.

Native American art and culture is the subject of this elegant site from the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Built around the cultures of the Northeast Woodlands, the Mississippi Valley, the Plains, the Southwest, and the Northwest Coast, the site offers images and text that can enhance any unit on Native Americans. There are also links to tribal web sites.

tag(s): india (36)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Native American culture. Have students explore the site with the intentions of presenting summaries of specific cultures or artworks. Have students create a multimedia presentation using YUtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture. Challenge students to find a photo of the art, the tribes or the regions (legally permitted to be reproduced), and then narrate the photo as if it is a news report. To find Creative Commons images for student projects (with credit, of course), try PhotoPin, reviewed here.

Play with a toolbox full of resources used by artists, and create unique works of art with this interactive resource. Learn about line, shape, color, balance, space, and movement through animated multimedia presentations, find examples of each element in works of art from museums, and then design your own pieces incorporating those tools. The site also includes short videos showing professional artists creating original compositions using the toolkit. Teachers can customize a toolkit to match a unit or lesson.

tag(s): colors (79), design (84), perspective (11)

In the Classroom

Share this in an art lesson or as a refresher resource available for students who get "stucK' in design processes. Since the interactives use audio, even younger students can understand them, especially the one about color. If you do infographic or other visual projects, the basic design information in this resource will help your students create projects that have greater visual appeal. Mark this one in your favorites and share it on your class web page for students to access outside of class.

This site from the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts is almost as good as a field trip. Stuffed with images, video clips, and text, it offers a presentation on Modernism that runs from the British arts and crafts movement in the 1880s through to American Art Deco of the 1940s. There are images, text, and video narration for each segment, providing a nice evolutionary tour. Use the pieces together or individually as supplemental material for art history, or as an adjunct to an American or European history class.

In the Classroom

Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of modernism in the past two centuries. Use the site's images and virtual exhibits to showcase the movement being talked about to compliment your class lectures. Another useful item is that some of the exhibits have a quick video clip that can help introduce the idea to your class in a way that foreshadows the rest of your lecture. Make sure your technology allows for the videos to be seen and not just heard!

It's an art and architectural style, not a school building. This site from the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts offers a visual perspective on the art and architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, William Gray Purcell, and others. In addition to showing works of art, the site offers several interactive tours of Wright houses, many in the twin cities area. Art teachers will use this one as a great American design example.

While most of this site deals with visiting Versailles, students will find sections dealing with the King's daily routine and the life of the French court in the 17th and 18th centuries. In addition, there are images of some of the more notable artwork, and of course, large sections available "seulement en Francais," which we hope will please the foreign language teachers. There's nothing like it elsewhere.

This elegant site from the Metropolitan Museum offers a look at Leonardo's drawings in endless depth. There are numerous images - all "zooom-able" - as well as extensive text and explanations of the images and Leonardo's life. Art teachers, especially those who teach drawing, may find this a great site for demonstration purposes. Those with an interest in art history or the renaissance will also find much to like here.

tag(s): drawing (78), leonardo davinci (4), renaissance (34)

In the Classroom

During a unit about the Renaissance, use this site as a way to introduce Leonardo to your class via images and bio derived from this site. Share this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector, using the image viewer to show the images to your class. Each image has a chronology and detailed introduction accompanying it. Teachers can strictly use these images as a part of their lecture, or within a visual discovery activity.

This site offers an extensive collection of lesson plans and other resources for teaching cartooning, caricature, and other drawing skills and styles in a studio environment. The content includes lots of drawing and examples. These are not trivial lessons, so some level of preparation is certainly appropriate.

In the Classroom

Use these extremely detailed in your own classroom, via interactive whiteboard or projector. Each presentation comes with notes and a pre-prepared PowerPoint presentation that's ready to be shown to students! Make sure to edit a few slides, the first contain information about class and teacher, and you are good to go! Especially useful in any art, film or social history class.

This site offers a detailed biographical treatment of Escher's work in illustrating perceptual and spatial phenomena and illusions. The site will be useful both for art instruction and for math or science study. We were delighted to find illustrations large enough to show the intricacies of these images. Even younger students will respond to, "What's going on in this picture?" discussions of these images.

The National Gallery's presentation of Egyptian tomb artifacts offers many stunning images that could enhance the study of Egypt at any grade level. The accompanying narrated slide shows (you'll need a RealPlayer) turn the site into an on-screen lecture tour.

Art, artifacts, and primary source documents frame this exploration of American Indians during the early 19th century. Through the eyes of artist, ethnologist, and showman George Catlin, students can take a virtual journey through time to meet American Indians of the 1830s. Contemporary experts provide commentary that raises provocative questions regarding the intersection of Native American and European. This searchable, award-winning site also includes lesson plans with cross-curricular connections and links to relevant standards. Created by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Quicktime required.
