This site about printmaking from the Museum of Modern Art provides animated illustrations, a gallery of print examples, and explanations of several different printmaking techniques. Elementary students can understand the basic concepts; middle and secondary students can use the demonstrations as a starting point for their own printmaking efforts. Outstanding work - but requires the Flash 5 player, a "must-have" plug-in which is available from the TeachersFirst Toolbox.

tag(s): art history (78)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning station or center during a unit on printmaking or the evolution of prints. Allow students to examine the activity in cooperative learning groups, before allowing them to create their own prints!

This Italian site offers an introductory, museum-by-museum tour of Florence, providing historical background and samples of collections for each location. Good introductory reference for an art or history project, or for a basic introduction to the collections. Easily navigable by students.

tag(s): museums (52)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Renaissance art in Europe. There is art that encompasses other time periods, but a good majority of it is from the Renaissance era. Allow students to peruse the site in cooperative learning groups, with the intentions of presenting their own summary of what they read on the site. Have students use a mapping tool such as as Zeemaps, reviewed here, to create a map of local landforms (with audio stories and pictures included)!

Appropriate for teachers and parents of children all ages. This Crayola site has a wealth of information for parents, teachers and students. The areas included are; techniques, lessons (for parents and teachers), dream makers, products, forums, and contests. The "Dream Maker" program is a year long theme program for grades k-6. There is a nominal charge for the teacher's guide. An excellent site! This site is maintained by the Crayola Company.

tag(s): drawing (82)

In the Classroom

This website is perfect for teachers in need of holiday crafts. Under "Arts and Crafts" there is a section that lists holidays, and provides a wealth of information under each one. Pick a project, and share it on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Students will love the examples provided, and keeping the directions up will solve a lot of time for the teacher. Include this site on your teacher web page to allow parents to access, as there are a lot of activities that could also be done at home!
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

Here's a well-illustrated, amply narrated explanation of how to introduce color theory into your art curriculum. This lesson uses easy-to-make foam core shapes to help students learn how colors combine and interact with one another. Lots of photographs show how the lesson can work in the classroom. This one's complete enough that teachers who aren't art specialists could use it.

In the Classroom

Ignore the advertising; the site content is worth it. This is a great website for Kindergarten teachers to access if ever in need of a quick project. There is information on centers, drama, art, etc and all can be set up in a relatively short period of time. Include it on your teacher web page for parents to access, as it provides at-home ideas that parents would also find useful!

Combining history, math, culture, art/design, and community awareness, this unit uses the quilt as a tool toward understanding African American culture. Students are introduced to the African homeland, the "story quilts" of Harriet Powers, and the significance of quilt-making in African American society. Individual quilt squares are designed and sown together to create a "story quilt" for the entire class.

This is a web game for kids which explores Van Gogh's paintings and style, complete with examples and commentary. The structure of the site encourages students to understand both what and why Van Gogh created his impressionist masterpieces. Great supplementary activity for an art class, or an independent exploration for the extra-curious.

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 (38), painting (67)

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 (168), animals (308)

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.
