Here is a collection of superb images of Italian sculpture. The catalogue is by artist, and there are special sections on the cities of Florence and Rome. This site is in Italian, but since it's image intensive it's not hard to navigate using the artists' names. Definitely worth a try for art and art history classes.

tag(s): italy (17), sculpture (21)

In the Classroom

Introduce the images on this site when teaching about the Renaissance in a World History classroom. Select the images needed and share them over the interactive whiteboard or projector.

Follow an illustrated step-by-step procedure to make folded paper sculpture. Use the demo on screen or as a lesson plan. This site also includes links to other studio art ideas and "quickies."

tag(s): origami (17)

In the Classroom

Have students try out this site on individual computers, or as a learning center. The most effective way to use this site is to allow students to work on it in pairs so they can easily assist each other. This would be an interesting addition to any lesson plan on origami, or in a language arts class, during a unit on a book such as "The Paper Crane."

Discovered in December, 1994, this cave holds multiple cave paintings available on the site as enlargeable images. These images could provide visual stimulation for art lessons on primitive art. (vocabulary is high level, images good for all ages) -

tag(s): france (40), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Use the images on this site to create a visual discovery activity in your classroom, introducing the topic of prehistoric cave drawings. Select 3-5 images from this site, choosing the most powerful and moving images. Placing the images on individual slides, allow students 1-2 minutes to observe each image. During that time period, students should be taking notes based on what they observe, predict and infer about each image. The more powerful and detailed the image is, the more information students can take out. After the class has observed all the chosen images, have a class discussion based on the notes students took. This is a great way to introduce content in a way that gets students thinking, as well as avoiding the typical lecture format.

This site from New York's Museum of Modern Art uses animals as an introduction to art appreciation. Students can view a selection of different art works, make their own observations about what the artist is showing, and learn about the role of art in cultural expression. The site can be used successfully at several different levels.

tag(s): africa (180), animals (276)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. This site would be useful for any teacher trying to teach interpreting art, or a language arts teacher teaching writing. A lot of the questions asked by the site are excellent examples of digging deeper or asking questions that are useful in interviews. Could be an excellent writing prompt.

The British Film Institute offers this site which details the evolution of animation from its crude beginnings in the late 19th century to today's sophisticated computer simulations. The site treats animation as an art form, and provides a number of examples of how animation trends mirror those elsewhere in the art world. This site puts an interesting spin on a topic with which most students are already familiar.

tag(s): italy (17)

In the Classroom

Use this site as the starting point for individual or group projects. The site provides information on all of the volcanoes in Italy that would be a great beginning for any research project. Post on your teacher webpage to allow access to students doing research both in and out of the classroom. The site can be used for both science or history, as it looks at both aspects.
