Printmaking, a process that predates the invention of movable type, was responsible for moving art beyond the walls of churches and palaces and into the hands of the masses. Trace the history and techniques of the printed image with this highly visual site that examines early examples of woodcuts, engravings, etchings, lithography, and more.

It may be a weighty title, but this user-friendly site provides a fascinating glimpse of how the development of moveable type during the Middle Ages completely revolutionized human communication, transforming Europe and, eventually, the entire world. From the earliest manuscripts and prayer books, to the very first books printed with Gutenberg's metal type, students can gain an understanding of how the metamorphosis of the written word affected human society. Includes images of manuscripts, bindings, and illustrations, along with descriptive commentary.

In the Classroom

Although this site lends itself to a study of influences that affected European history during the Middle Ages, art students can explore the illuminations and letterforms that appear on the pages of these early manuscripts and books as part of a study of printmaking techniques.

Imagine the fun and challenge of painting-by-number - without the mess. This unique site provides a virtual coloring experience with lots of bells and whistles. Choose a category and level of difficulty, check out the tools (zoom, timer), and start the recreation of a masterpiece. Themes include holidays, historic figures, works by well-known artists, famous places, and so much more. You won't have to stretch to find a way to link this hands-on activity with a curricular area. Use to build number recognition and mouse skills with younger students, or help older students recognize the complexity of color, shading, and composition.

tag(s): painting (66)

In the Classroom

Great activity to make available on a classroom computer as a reward, or incorporate into a study of a represented artist. Challenge secondary art students to create their own "paint-by-number" activity and convert to a scanned and printable activity for younger students.

Creativity and practicality come together in this imaginative activity that places students in the role of city planner.

Finished designs may be saved, printed, or sent as ecards. Free registration required.

tag(s): cities (26), communities (37)

In the Classroom

Since text cannot be added to the city plans on this site, consider projecting finished plans on an interactive white board and asking students to label or describe buildings and sections of their cities.

This companion site to an international exhibition marking the centenary of C?zanne's death, focuses on the landscape of Aix-en-Provence - a region that profoundly influenced his artwork. The true gem of the site is an exhibition tour with audio that is worth taking. Visitors can view and interact with dozens of his paintings while listening to expert commentary. Other features include a chronology of his work, an interactive image list, and a map illustrating the locations around Aix where C?zanne completed specific works.

This highly visual, interactive white board activity introduces students to the concept of warm and cold colors. After analyzing images and reflecting on the effect color has on mood, students can play a "mixed up rain" game in which they try to catch the colored raindrops using the appropriate "warm" or "cold" puddles. Very cute! The interactive whiteboard activity requires the most current version of FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

This is a "just for fun" site that harkens back to the days when students used to created their own animated pictures by scribbling little drawings on the bottom of their tablets and flipping through the pages. Use this virtual tablet to sketch a series of images then click the "eye" button to watch the animation. Tour the Flip Book gallery - but beware - there may be some animations inappropriate for young children. Even if you activate the "Filter Mature Content" feature in "Preferences," you must still be vigilant!

In the Classroom

Take some time to poke around to find the gem that will spice up your art classroom. This is a great site to use in the elementary classroom, and in art electives classes in middle grades and high school. Be sure to share it with other teachers on your campus and put a link to this tool on your class website for students to use at home. Use a visual blogging tool such as Check This, reviewed here, to upload the students' art work. The students can blog about their work and even create an online portfolio. Host an art show at your school for families and the communities to showcase the students' creativity. Your students can describe their work as visitors explore the gallery. In a language arts class have students brainstorm to analyze the character(s), setting, and situation of a painting and create an original story. Explore this site before a trip to an art museum.

This impressive collection of magazine cover art represents some of the world's most compelling personalities and some of Time's most memorable art work.

tag(s): famous people (23), news (259)

In the Classroom

This site would be useful in a Art History or US government class studying the impact of the media on politics. Have students explore the site on the interactive whiteboard, allowing them to be hands on with the material - avoid being the Vanna White of the board! As students are navigating the site, focus their attention on how many presidents and political figures are featured - as evidenced on the link entitled "Most Featured Person." This could lead into a great discussion of how exposure can affect politicians, as well as the difference between good and bad press.

This online exhibition from the Library of Congress features more than 70 color photographs - taken between 1939 and 1943 - that vividly capture the effects of the Great Depression on rural and small-town America and highlight the economic growth that preceded World War II. This is great visual resource for a 20th century American history class. Photography students can use the site to examine how the "Kodachrome" era changed the way we view our collective past.

tag(s): great depression (27), photography (159)

In the Classroom

It's interesting how viewing the images in color makes the viewer feel as though the Great Depression was something far more recent - perhaps due to the dated feeling of black and white images. In a discussion of the Great Depression, spend some time comparing these images and the traditional black and white images seen on the interactive whiteboard or projector. Ask students about the differences and if one is more revealing or not. This can also lead into a discussion on the reliability of primary sources and the effects of seeing something rather than reading it.
