Discovered in December, 1994, this cave holds multiple cave paintings available on the site as enlargeable images. These images could provide visual stimulation for art lessons on primitive art. (vocabulary is high level, images good for all ages) -

tag(s): france (39), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Use the images on this site to create a visual discovery activity in your classroom, introducing the topic of prehistoric cave drawings. Select 3-5 images from this site, choosing the most powerful and moving images. Placing the images on individual slides, allow students 1-2 minutes to observe each image. During that time period, students should be taking notes based on what they observe, predict and infer about each image. The more powerful and detailed the image is, the more information students can take out. After the class has observed all the chosen images, have a class discussion based on the notes students took. This is a great way to introduce content in a way that gets students thinking, as well as avoiding the typical lecture format.

This site from New York's Museum of Modern Art uses animals as an introduction to art appreciation. Students can view a selection of different art works, make their own observations about what the artist is showing, and learn about the role of art in cultural expression. The site can be used successfully at several different levels.

tag(s): africa (173), animals (292)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. This site would be useful for any teacher trying to teach interpreting art, or a language arts teacher teaching writing. A lot of the questions asked by the site are excellent examples of digging deeper or asking questions that are useful in interviews. Could be an excellent writing prompt.

The British Film Institute offers this site which details the evolution of animation from its crude beginnings in the late 19th century to today's sophisticated computer simulations. The site treats animation as an art form, and provides a number of examples of how animation trends mirror those elsewhere in the art world. This site puts an interesting spin on a topic with which most students are already familiar.

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.
