Here's an art site that combines excellent images with well-developed instruction. The approach used by this 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. This reviewer found one video where the sound uses shockwave; however, the video can be downloaded and converted to another format, or you could use it as a slide show.

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 impressionism. Save the site on the classroom computers, and have students look at it in cooperative learning groups or pairs. An excellent project would be to have students create online posters making a simple painting of one subject from both artistic points of view using a tool like Draw.Chat, reviewed here. Bookmark this site for information about impressionist artists and characteristics of the period
