This online gallery contains a staggering number of works of art - more than 10,000 - organized by artist, country, movement, and name. Biographical information on each artist is provided. Of special note is a "World Literature in Painting" link that thematically connects art with classic literary works.

tag(s): literature (275)

In the Classroom

Use the "World Literature in Painting," to find images to accompany your study of a piece of literature. The images hosted here are small, but the descriptions are descriptive and provide some excellent background on the art and literature. Find larger copies of the image elsewhere, and use them over the interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce interpretations of a piece of writing. Bare minimum, this would be a great way to show the impact the writing had on the culture.

This unique online gallery provides in-depth commentary on artistic works, artists and subjects. Of particular note is the exhibit of American landscape painting from 1820-1880 which draws connections between the paintings in the collection and the literature that inspired them. Another impressive feature is the i-Map Project which provides an interactive, multimedia exploration of the works, ideas and innovations of Matisse and Picasso.

Enter this virtual exhibit to view satellite photos of some of the world's most amazing geographic and geologic treasure. Basic maps are provided to show visitors the approximate location of each strange and awe-inspiring art form. Dramatic deforestation in the Amazon Basin, the West Fjords of Iceland, and the Lambert Glacier in Antarctica are among the breathtaking images included in the collection. Use this site to inspire your art students, illustrate a geographic concept, or enrich an environmental science lesson.

tag(s): ecology (135), landforms (45), photography (160)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an Earth Day activity! Use the maps on deforestation to lead to a conversation on conservationism.

This lesson plan designed by the New York Times challenges students to reflect on the uses of math in their daily lives and develop clear, compelling ways to communicate mathematical concepts to the average layman. After reading and discussing a related New York Times article (link provided), students must work with a partner to research a mathematical or physics concept and design a multimedia brochure explaining that concept to the general public. A clever and thought-provoking way for students to understand math from the inside out.

Amazing sights await you in this site that takes a fascinating look at how the world around you changes. Visitors can actually control the passage of time - speed it up or slow it down - and view the coming of spring, the evolution of the continents, or the incredible functions of the human eye. Follow the Activities link to find some visually challenging interactive activities. This site would be an engaging addition to a life science or art lesson. Use the activities to encourage creative problem solving, or select one of the video images to use as a creative writing prompt.

Art, Literature, U.S. History - Works by some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century are represented in this massive collection of powerful images documenting memorable events in American politics and culture. Project selected photos in class to introduce an event in history, inspire student photographers, or introduce a writing prompt. The sight is searchable and quite user-friendly. A fee is required to download images.

tag(s): photography (160)

In the Classroom

Use the photos found in this site for writing prompts. Search within the site or browse the subjects offered to find one that corresponds to a unit being studied. A good example would be the images taken of the Great Depression. Pull up a select few of the images and prompt students to tell the story of what is happening in the image, the emotions seen, and what kind of impact this is meant to have of the viewer. An activity like this does require some background knowledge so this might better suited towards the end of a unit as review. This site would benefit teachers of nearly any subject, especially history, language arts, civics and science.

Take your art students on a virtual tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art with this impressive retrospective highlighting the work of Childe Hassam, one of America's leading impressionist artists. More than 120 oil paintings, watercolors, pastels and prints are featured, depicting nostalgic views of well-known sites across America and Europe. Details of each image can be explored with the click of a mouse, and descriptive captions are provided for each work. A lengthy chronology of Hassam's life is included along with an excerpt from a delightful silent film (produced by the Met in 1932) about the artist. Portions of this site would be quite at home in an American history class! Be sure to investigate the "Family Feature" link which offers an interactive "Meet the Artist" activity, timeline, and several "Closer Look" activities designed for younger students.

tag(s): artists (75), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an introductory activity on the interactive whiteboard to impressionism in the US. The images on the site are excellent representations of impressionism and can be used as examples to help students characterize it.

Divide students into cooperative learning groups to explore the site. Have them compare and contrast what they note about impressionism to other styles that have been studied before in class. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here). Have students print out their diagrams OR display their findings on the interactive whiteboard to their peers.

Tour the gallery to see what others have created. A fun and unique alternative to tradition pen and ink sketches!

tag(s): drawing (78)

In the Classroom

Save this site in your favorites on your class computers. Allow students to create their own designs in the "scribbler," and use those drawings as inspiration for an art project. Encourage recreating the scribble in other mediums, or even trying to sketch their own. In a language arts class, allow students to create poems or short rhymes in the scribbler. The graphic addition makes the poems a very interesting display, and is a different take on an old assignment! Due to the spider-web quality of the designs, scribbler poems would be perfect around Halloween.

Use this site for an in-depth study of 19th century French painter Paul Gauguin. The focus of this interactive, on-line exhibition is his extraordinary work titled "Where Do We Come From? Where Are We? Where Are We Going," a masterpiece produced during the artist's time in Tahiti. Visitors can move a virtual magnifying glass over the work and click on 15 separate segments. Each segment is augmented by background text and audio interviews with art historians. This is a high-level site for serious analysis by mature students.

A bad example may be worth a thousand words. This site takes a playful and insightful approach to the best of the worst, providing visual images of "fine art" that, in some cases, defy description. Art teachers will find this to be a useful resource for illustrating what students should not emulate. Projecting this site in art class will provide rich material for discussion on style, form, and composition. Browseable sections include Portraiture, Landscape, and Unseen Forces. PLEASE PREVIEW and select images before projecting in the classroom. A few pieces in the collection are not "school appropriate."

Visual arts and social commentary come together in this site that looks at human history through the lens of artists and illustrators. Topics include graphic arts in wartime, 19th century news illustrations, 9-11 aftermath, and art under duress. Use this site to provoke discussion, guide reflective writing, or inspire personal artistic expression. These compelling images would make very effective anticipatory sets when projected in the classroom.

tag(s): sept11 (21)

In the Classroom

Use the images to create a visual discovery activity in your classroom - for example, use the collection of drawings to teach the events of 9/11 to your students. Share the images on the interactive whiteboard or projector, with students filling out reflections about each image. Reflections should focus on what they observe, infer and predict about each image. After showing a few of the more powerful images, have a class discussion as to what students wrote in their reflections. Going back to each image - what did we learn? What can we assume? What does this picture tell us about this event? You would be surprised about the emotional impact students learn, in addition to the content. This would be a good activity to do as a review, when students are able to use the information on class to project about the images. A great resource for a US history course.

Howtoons shows you how to create projects out of ordinary household items. Anyone who likes to construct, to use tools, to draw, to do-it-yourself, and to get active should visit Howtoons. This very cool program narrates in cartoon format the story of a witty, preteen brother and sister who build all sorts of projects to accent the situations they find themselves in. The many projects range in difficulty from creating a trash bag raincoat, to building a Wobbler; a robot that moves using a servo motor. Each narrative starts with a little story, has a list of supplies needed, and gives simple diagrams to follow. They also slip in information such as how the ancient Greeks used drawings to express their ideas, share their history, and record their culture. Howtoons strives to promote safety, inspire creativity, and stress good work habits. Find an interesting project in categories like Animation, Biology, Computing, Communication, Craft, Energy, Engineering, Environment, Fashion, Food, Geometry, Holiday, Math, Music, Play, and Tools. Projects are available online or in PDF format.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): crafts (41), creativity (109), engineering (125), inventors and inventions (101), multimedia (57)

In the Classroom

Language arts, science, and arts and crafts teachers will find Howtoons invaluable for teaching students to read and follow directions, to use different tools, to work safely while constructing, and even to collaborate. Have small groups of students work on a project together. Once your students have completed the projects, have a mini project fair in your room to show them off. Or, you can have students take pictures of each step, upload the images onto UtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture. Or for less adventurous students, create a PowerPoint. Then have them add the directions, and present the UtellStory or PowerPoint and the product to the class. Do you have students who are always finished early? Or reluctant readers? Make Howtoons the "go to" program for them. Have them pick a project, bring in the materials, and build it. They can even present it to the class when finished, and let the class know the pitfalls to avoid.
