tag(s): art history (81)

In the Classroom

In the art classroom, find ways to add technology to instruction using your projector or interactive whiteboard and demonstrating different techniques found on this site. For project based learning in any class, share this tool as a resource to add visual impact to students' research projects. Social studies teachers can include lessons about making African art during units about that continent. Encourage your artistically inclined students to explore on their own. Explore this site before a trip to an art museum or to find inspiration for a display or culminating project in a teaching unit. You may even find some bulletin board ideas for your classroom! Ask students to document their learning stages by taking photos of their art and editing them and then making a collage with PhotoCat, reviewed here. Encourage older students to keep their work in a portfolio for future use with Pathbrite, reviewed here.

This is a beautifully-designed on-line exhibition which shows Himalayan artistic and cultural items in stunning detail. The narrative explains the significance of the items in Tibetan culture while explaining some of this history of this ancient land. Suitable for inclusion in any survey of oriental or east Asian art and culture.

tag(s): china (63), india (32)

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).

The art history resources index page will lead you to thousands of historically oriented resources. This site includes links to visual arts, performing arts, antiques, literature, architecture, and film. An Arts Search engine is also included in the site. The student or teacher of Art History would find this site invaluable.

tag(s): art history (81)

In the Classroom

What is great about this site is that all artists are first organized by popular movement/time period, and then ABC order. Use this site to show specific examples of work done by an artist one is studying in the classroom. For history teachers, this would be a good site to show how art reflects society. Select an art source that originates from the time period you are studying in class. Share the image with students on the interactive whiteboard or projector, and debate what you can learn from society based on this picture. For example, the image "Napoleon Bonaparte Visiting the Plague-Stricken in Jaffa" by Antoine-Jean Gros. From that image you can pull out that there was a plague, the differences in class, and the impact of war on French society. While it might sound lofty, the right image can show these kind of details and can show the broadened definition of what can constitute as a primary or secondary source.

tag(s): drawing (76)

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.

Here's a nice resource for retrieving short bios and explanations of people and events in the history of art, music, and other cultural disciplines. While the write-ups aren't remarkable, the use of time lines and other graphical devices helps users understand the relationship of the selection to other events and issues. You'll need the Macromedia Flash/Shockwave player, available from the TeachersFirst Toolbox.

tag(s): biographies (92), news (260)

In the Classroom

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.

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.

A teacher could quickly and easily retrieve African American art examples from this site which could be incorporated in Social Science, Art or History classes. Especially useful in multicultural studies.

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.

Here is a collection of superb images of Italian sculpture. The catalogue is by artist, and there are special sections on the cities of Florence and Rome. This site is in Italian, but since it's image intensive it's not hard to navigate using the artists' names. Definitely worth a try for art and art history classes.
