This site displays a number of collections of children's artwork, much of it created in response to specific projects or sites operated by third parties. It's a good general resource for examples of artwork from young people of all ages. It would also be a great source to see how children have reacted to learning about specific topics such as world hunger and the holocaust.

This Japanese site offers a collection of classical Japanese artwork, suitable for study as part of an exposure to Japanese history. The interface isn't the greatest, and the images contain watermarks, but the site works fine as an example of the unique nature of Japanese artistic representations.

tag(s): japan (60)

In the Classroom

Use these images in a picture walk around the classroom to introduce or review a unit on some aspect of Japanese culture. Select 10-15 images to be hung around the classroom, with students rotating between them every 30-60 seconds. Have students fill out quickly what they observe and infer about each image, with the intentions of connecting each image to an essential understanding about Japanese culture. For help creating easy and quick graphic organizers for the activity, we recommend a site such as Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

Use the images in the exhibit for a visual discovery activity. Select 3-4 images, placing them on a slide-show presentation. Have students take notes on each of the images, noting what they observe, infer and predict about each one. After the presentation, have a class discussion based around student notes. This would be great review activity before an assessment, allowing students to apply the knowledge just learned. This would be a great resource for a world history classroom.

This is an on-line catalog for the Whitney Musem's exhibition of the same name - a presentation on electronic music and arts. Navigating the Flash site takes some experimenting, which we suspect was intentional. Fans of comtemporary electronic music will find the sound clips from the various artists worth auditioning. If you have students working in this medium, send them here.

Discover the many works of Dante Gabriel Rossett - painter, designer, writer, and translator. On the menu at the top click exhibits and objects to find a varied list that categorizes Rossett's works: Double Works, Pictures, Poems, Prose, Translations, Books, Manuscripts, Correspondence, and Material Design. Scroll down the page to find biographical information about this man who some say was the most important and original artistic force in the second half of the nineteenth century in Great Britain.

tag(s): art history (81)

In the Classroom

Introduce the exhibits and objects page with a projector or on an interactive whiteboard and have the students partner read the biographical information about Rossett. Have students take notes using Webnote, reviewed here; tell students to be sure to save the URL to share their notes and questions with you and their peers. Next show students how to navigate the exhibits and objects page. Ask partners or small groups to choose one topic from the list of Pictures, Poems, etc. Then, in your flipped or blended classroom (or at a computer center), have students explore on their own, continuing to take online notes. Take this a step further and allow pairs or small groups of students to share what they learned with their peers using an interactive infographic like Canva, reviewed here. Students can keep their work for future reference in a digital portfolio such as DIY, reviewed here.

Did you know that one if every five buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright has been destroyed? This site is sponsored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, which is dedicated to preserving the buildings he designed. There is a comprehensive gallery of images of his buildings, which take time to download, as well as ideas for how to take action to save the buildings that remain. While this site is commercial, it is a great way to get students involved in action projects.

tag(s): architecture (84)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource for anyone doing a research project on Frank Lloyd Wright. The content concerning saving his buildings may not be necessary, but the background they provide on the architect is of great quality. Include this site on any handouts or class wikis concerning research resources.

"Truth Against the World" is just one of many quotes by one of this century's leading architects. In this site, you'll find Wright's words on life, architecture, cities, television, god and nature, and even a quote on Marilyn Monroe. Any one of these quotes could be used as a springboard for expository theme writing.

tag(s): architecture (84)

In the Classroom

Make a shortcut to this page of quotes from Wright on classroom computers or include it on your class web page for students to use as a resource for projects. Have students include a quote when turning in work, and explain how it inspired or helped them. Add music or art to explain a quote. During the first week of the school year, share this site with students. Challenge students to choose a personal "quote of the year" to set the tone for their goals. Have students put the quote in their notebook, folder, or on their device desktop. Choose a few quotes to hang around your classroom. Show students how to keep favorite quotes in an idea bin where they keep thoughts, thoughtful questions, and pieces of inspiration. Here are two tools you might like for an idea bin for middle or high school students: Thoughtboxes, reviewed here, and The Sketchbook Project, reviewed here. An idea bin collector for primary and elementary students could be Padlet, reviewed here.

In the Classroom

If you teach about career explorations, this site would be of interest to budding architects and builders from elementary on up. Have students draw or annotate an image of a home, complete with architectural terms, and explain why it fits the location where it is built. In upper level classes, compare the homes found on this site with newer, green designs. Have physics or science students annotate a home image to show the forces upon it and the underlying structures used to keep the home standing. Share the images in a "home show" on your class wiki!

In the Classroom

In an art class, introduce Andy Worhol on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Use the lesson plans to concentrate on the details and techniques known about the artist's style. Encourage your students to create Warhol inspired works. Create a multimedia presentation on Warhol's art using one of many TeachersFirst Edge tools, reviewed here. Some tool suggestions are (click on the tool name to access the review): Visme, Adobe Spark, Plotagon, and My Simpleshow.

This site offers fairly technical interpretations of how the mind interprets perspective, shadow, and other three-dimensional effects in two dimensional artwork. Developed by a psychology professor, it offers a theoretical framework for developing artistic effects. There's probably more theory here than the average student would need, but the approach could be a helpful foundation.

This site documents a Diego Rivera mural, Pan-American Unity, created in San Francisco in 1940 for an exposition there. The site includes both overviews of the mural panels as well as a video showing highly detailed segments of the artwork. An interesting presentation of this resource.

tag(s): painting (65)

In the Classroom

Read about the different panels in partners or small groups, or at a classroom computer center for students to access independently. Then consider having students watch the silent 15 minute video either at home or at the computer center as a small group, in partners, or independently. Have them write down questions about the part or parts they would like to know more about. This video isn't download-able or a YouTube or Vimeo, so the best way for students to identify the part(s) they're interested in would be to have them describe the part they want to know more about using a journaling tool like Penzu, reviewed here. With Penzu they can add their own artwork as illustrations. Instead of journaling, students could use a tool such as Screen-cast-o-matic, reviewed here, to capture the image on their screen and annotate it either in text or verbally.
