Take virtual tour of the famous cave paintings of Lascaux in France, read about their discovery, learn to interpret the drawings, and find out fragile environment of the caves. The site itself is beautiful to explore, letting you experience the caves with a virtual "flashlight" as you enter.

tag(s): archeology (32), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Use a projector to introduce the site, if you must, but allow your students to navigate this one alone or with a partner. The thrill of discovery through the site's design is more than worth any management challenges. Give the students a specific set of questions to answer and things to find, if you are concerned that they may not stay on task. Compare these primitive drawings to those found in other cultures and continents as you discuss common themes in religion and mythology.

Imagine the fun and challenge of painting-by-number - without the mess. This unique site provides a virtual coloring experience with lots of bells and whistles. Choose a category and level of difficulty, check out the tools (zoom, timer), and start the recreation of a masterpiece. Themes include holidays, historic figures, works by well-known artists, famous places, and so much more. You won't have to stretch to find a way to link this hands-on activity with a curricular area. Use to build number recognition and mouse skills with younger students, or help older students recognize the complexity of color, shading, and composition.

tag(s): painting (66)

In the Classroom

Great activity to make available on a classroom computer as a reward, or incorporate into a study of a represented artist. Challenge secondary art students to create their own "paint-by-number" activity and convert to a scanned and printable activity for younger students.

Creativity and practicality come together in this imaginative activity that places students in the role of city planner.

This highly visual, interactive white board activity introduces students to the concept of warm and cold colors. After analyzing images and reflecting on the effect color has on mood, students can play a "mixed up rain" game in which they try to catch the colored raindrops using the appropriate "warm" or "cold" puddles. Very cute! The interactive whiteboard activity requires the most current version of FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

This is a "just for fun" site that harkens back to the days when students used to created their own animated pictures by scribbling little drawings on the bottom of their tablets and flipping through the pages. Use this virtual tablet to sketch a series of images then click the "eye" button to watch the animation. Tour the Flip Book gallery - but beware - there may be some animations inappropriate for young children. Even if you activate the "Filter Mature Content" feature in "Preferences," you must still be vigilant!

This site includes advertising.

tag(s): artists (76), drawing (78), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Take some time to poke around to find the gem that will spice up your art classroom. This is a great site to use in the elementary classroom, and in art electives classes in middle grades and high school. Be sure to share it with other teachers on your campus and put a link to this tool on your class website for students to use at home. Use a visual blogging tool such as Check This, reviewed here, to upload the students' art work. The students can blog about their work and even create an online portfolio. Host an art show at your school for families and the communities to showcase the students' creativity. Your students can describe their work as visitors explore the gallery. In a language arts class have students brainstorm to analyze the character(s), setting, and situation of a painting and create an original story. Explore this site before a trip to an art museum.
