Click on the "education programs" button, which leads to a set of artist-specific lesson plans and art education resources. (We've listed the home page URL out of necessity.) This site would be a good one to show students that "art" isn't limited to painting alone.

This German site offers a well-illustrated history of German architect Walter Gropius and his vision for a new form of design and architecture that came to be know as Bauhaus. Elements of this style came to be incorporated into art, stage, photography, and other disciplines. Beyond its obvious interest to art teachers, those teaching secondary history or social studies may also find this material useful.

The National Gallery's presentation of Egyptian tomb artifacts offers many stunning images that could enhance the study of Egypt at any grade level. The accompanying narrated slide shows (you'll need a RealPlayer) turn the site into an on-screen lecture tour. The vocabulary, however, is "over the heads" of elementary and many middle school students. Visit this one if you're studying Egypt, and decide how it fits best into your classroom.

tag(s): egypt (67), pyramids (29)

In the Classroom

Use the 10 minute video-clip as an introductory activity during a unit Ancient Egypt. Share the video on the interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce a classroom discussion or lecture on the topic. A very detailed resource for a world history classroom!

Art, artifacts, and primary source documents frame this exploration of American Indians during the early 19th century. Through the eyes of artist, ethnologist, and showman George Catlin, students can take a virtual journey through time to meet American Indians of the 1830s. Contemporary experts provide commentary that raises provocative questions regarding the intersection of Native American and European. This searchable, award-winning site also includes lesson plans with cross-curricular connections and links to relevant standards. Created by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Quicktime required.

tag(s): painting (66)

In the Classroom

History, social studies, and art teachers will find this site useful, but it will take some planning to use effectively.

Art and History teachers will appreciate this site devoted to unique artistic interpretations of California's many missions. Those in California may wish to add this one to the list of resources for California history. The site would also work well as a sample of one artist's conception of reality, since there are many other mission sites to use as comparisons.

tag(s): california (27)

In the Classroom

This site has a TON of activities and lessons planned for a unit based on the art of Father Jerome Tupa! Save the site as a favorite on your classroom computer and browse their large list for activities that will work in your classroom.

Students reading Twain's books may be surprised to know that he lived in Hartford, not along the Mississippi. This site from the restored home offers a virtual tour, a kids' section with a word search, and some very basic information about the house. This one's worth a look for those interested in late 19th century architecture.

tag(s): architecture (84), mark twain (10)

In the Classroom

Teachers wanting to introduce some of Twain's personal life before or after reading one of his books can do just that with this site. Share the site with students on the interactive whiteboard, watching the virtual tour or examining the exhibits. There may not be a ton of information, but this is a great way to get students started on understanding just a little bit more about the famous author.

Artsonia is an online community to facilitate sharing of art instruction ideas and student artwork. Several of the site's features require registration, but there's much to see and do in the openly available areas as well. This one's worth a peek if you're interested in seeing what other students and teachers are doing.

Art or art history teachers will find this one an outstanding source of examples of art and craft from this complex culture.

tag(s): crafts (41), middle east (30)

In the Classroom

Share this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector as an introduction to this unit or as review. This site would be a great resource for a classroom studying Islamic culture and history.

A surprisingly engaging site from a private source, this atlas of interesting architecture lets users browse by region, city, or topic - including headings such as "unusual" and "haunted." The results are well-illustrated synopses about buildings of historic or specific interest. The coverage isn't uniform, but what's there is interesting, and could be useful in examining architecture, geography, or world cultures.

This is an on-line museum that contains a rotating selections of photographic exhibitions, including contemporary photographers and early photos as well.

Here's a webquest that asks older students to create their own exhibition according to several criteria. Students must devise a theme and find appropriate images from the many sources suggested. This would be a good summary project for a unit on visual art forms.

tag(s): painting (66)

In the Classroom

Although it would be hard to incorporate their own art, have students make a virtual exhibit for the other art they are to incorporate in the exhibit. Use an online poster creator, such as Padlet (reviewed here), where students can post the images of the art they would include with their own.

Part of a far larger site, this section offers lots of instructions on the basics of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. There are examples galore, along with information on terminology, reading folding instructions, and sources for origami patterns. If you're looking for an art activity that requires very little equipment, try this one.

tag(s): japan (61), origami (17), paper folding (5)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an supplement to the book "One Thousand Paper Cranes." After the students have completed the book, use some class time to allow students to create their own cranes in class. Introduce the site on the interactive whiteboard before allowing students to explore it further in cooperative learning groups. Once students have created a crane, encourage them to try more complicated shapes and figures! This is a great way to lead into a conversation on the significance of origami and why it was so important in the book.

This site displays a number of collections of children's artwork, much of it created in response to specific projects or sites operated by third parties. It's a good general resource for examples of artwork from young people of all ages. It would also be a great source to see how children have reacted to learning about specific topics such as world hunger and the holocaust.

This Japanese site offers a collection of classical Japanese artwork, suitable for study as part of an exposure to Japanese history. The interface isn't the greatest, and the images contain watermarks, but the site works fine as an example of the unique nature of Japanese artistic representations.

tag(s): japan (61)

In the Classroom

Use these images in a picture walk around the classroom to introduce or review a unit on some aspect of Japanese culture. Select 10-15 images to be hung around the classroom, with students rotating between them every 30-60 seconds. Have students fill out quickly what they observe and infer about each image, with the intentions of connecting each image to an essential understanding about Japanese culture. For help creating easy and quick graphic organizers for the activity, we recommend a site such as Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).
