Far from being regional in nature, this online, interactive treasure takes visitors on a virtual exploration of artistic treasures housed in three of the state's finest galleries. Choose a location, and a piece of artwork, then watch a thought-provoking video segment about the artist who created it. More than one dozen pieces are represented - including works by Degas, Grant Wood, to Edward Hopper, and more.

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!

Art teachers will find a plethora of resources on this site that offers printable lesson plans, networking opportunities, interactive games and activities, ideas for substitute teachers, self-correcting tests, and so much more. There is something for every grade level on this site, or search by artist or technique. Lesson Plans are aligned to standards.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): artists (76), drawing (80), painting (66)

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 beautifully designed site reveals the rich cultural traditions of Africa through its art and rituals. As students investigate this interactive exhibit, they can examine and manipulate a variety of artifacts, listen to traditional music, and learn about the circle of life that dominates artistic expression throughout the continent. Aligned to Standards. Requires FLASH. If you do not see the site content coming up, get FLASH from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): africa (180), cultures (107), religions (67)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on African cultures. Because there is a lot of content on this site, it would probably work best with a graphic organizer to guide students. For help with graphic organizers, try Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

There is so much to explore in this bright, colorful, and highly interactive site. It's a great virtual playground for primary grades. Students can interact with letters and numbers; compose music with a virtual keyboard, mix paints on a virtual palette to create colorful masterpieces, and so much more. This would be a great independent practice site to bookmark on your classroom computer. Available in French and English.

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. You'll find portraits of queens, presidents, popes, athletes, and entertainers - the famous as well as the infamous. Each portrait is accompanied by brief biographical information and sound clips.

tag(s): famous people (21), news (265)

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 (25), photography (162)

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.

This site is a companion to an exhibit of oil paintings, watercolors, drawings and prints by American artist Winslow Homer. The exhibit spans his career from early oil paintings of the Civil War era and classic images of 19th century American life through his late watercolors of sea scenes. Also includes biographic information with video clips and a visual chronology of works.

tag(s): artists (76)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. Have students go through the slide show and then select one image to analyze. Have students create a multimedia presentation using UtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture. Challenge students to narrate the photo as if it is a news report. To find Creative Commons images for student projects (with credit, of course), try Compfight, reviewed here.
