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 (74)

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 (51)

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)!

This is an elegantly designed history of Michelangelo created by a web design firm by the same name. The presentation and content are both top-notch, making this one well worth a visit if you're studying Italian Renaissance art.

tag(s): painting (67), sculpture (21)

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 the Italian Renaissance. This site offers biographical information about Michelangelo, in addition to images of some of his work. Share this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector to show students some of the images created by the artist. Within the teacher resources page there is a search option that allows you to search their resources for specific words and phrases. This would be a great tool for students working on research projects or papers as the results will be similar to a google search, without the junk. For this use, save the site as a favorite on your teacher web page or wiki to allow students to access it in and out of the classroom.

This site, from the Smithsonian Institution's "Art to Zoo" series, offers a complete introduction to Japan and its arts, including discussion ideas and lesson activities. All materials are available as downloadable Adobe Acrobat PDF files, so you can print out the entire unit. (A color printer works best, of course.) You can download the Adobe Acrobat reader from the TeachersFirst Toolbox.

tag(s): japan (60), japanese (45)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lesson plans that are offered on this website, as they come with pages of vocab, student work, discussion questions, and closing questions. In a unit about early Japanese history, share the "color inserts" on an interactive whiteboard or projector, to show students the cultural history. These images would be a great introduction into a discussion on arts reflection of society, Confucianism, Taoism, and the symbolism of Japanese Calligraphy.

Here's an art site that combines excellent images with well-developed instruction. The approach used by this shockwave-enhanced site is engaging enough for younger students, yet includes enough detail and information for more serious, older art students. The comparisons between impressionist and classical technical styles are particularly interesting.

The narrative explains the significance of the items in Tibetan culture while explaining some of this history of this ancient land.

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource for a picture-walk in your classroom during a lesson on early Himalayan/Indian Culture. Select 10-15 of the most striking images of this site, print, and hang around the classroom at designated areas. Have students rotate between pictures, every 30-45 seconds, jotting down what they observe and infer. This activity works best if the images selected reflect different aspects of the culture - from agriculture, class-systems, economy, etc. If looking for a graphic organizer to structure the notes more, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

While the information is not exactly encyclopedia worthy, this site is an interesting way to connect cultural figures together. Use this site as a way to get students interested to continue further research on cultural figures. Provide the site as a resource for any one working on a research project.

While the African-American experience is the focus of this unit, the content can be easily adapted to address other cultural and gender-related stereotypes.

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.

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.
