In the Classroom

Use the images in the exhibit for a visual discovery activity. Select 3-4 images, placing them on a slide-show presentation. Have students take notes on each of the images, noting what they observe, infer and predict about each one. After the presentation, have a class discussion based around student notes. This would be great review activity before an assessment, allowing students to apply the knowledge just learned. This would be a great resource for a world history classroom.

This is an on-line catalog for the Whitney Musem's exhibition of the same name - a presentation on electronic music and arts. Navigating the Flash site takes some experimenting, which we suspect was intentional. Fans of comtemporary electronic music will find the sound clips from the various artists worth auditioning. If you have students working in this medium, send them here.

Did you know that one if every five buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright has been destroyed? This site is sponsored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, which is dedicated to preserving the buildings he designed. There is a comprehensive gallery of images of his buildings, which take time to download, as well as ideas for how to take action to save the buildings that remain. While this site is commercial, it is a great way to get students involved in action projects.

tag(s): architecture (83)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource for anyone doing a research project on Frank Lloyd Wright. The content concerning saving his buildings may not be necessary, but the background they provide on the architect is of great quality. Include this site on any handouts or class wikis concerning research resources.

"Truth Against the World" is just one of many quotes by one of this century's leading architects. In this site, you'll find Wright's words on life, architecture, cities, television, god and nature, and even a quote on Marilyn Monroe. Any one of these quotes could be used as a springboard for expository theme writing.

This site is presented by Frank Lloyd Wright Wisconsin Heritage Tourism Program. You'll find guides of Wright';s work throughout Wisconsin including photographs of the buildings, maps which show how to find them, and, if you're ever in Wisconsin, numbers to call for a tour. Use this site to compare works done in Wisconsin, such as the SC Johnson Wax Administration Building in Racine, the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Milwaukee, and the Unitarian Meeting House in Madison with other buildings by Wright.

This site about printmaking from the Museum of Modern Art provides animated illustrations, a gallery of print examples, and explanations of several different printmaking techniques. Elementary students can understand the basic concepts; middle and secondary students can use the demonstrations as a starting point for their own printmaking efforts. Outstanding work - but requires the Flash 5 player, a "must-have" plug-in which is available from the TeachersFirst Toolbox.

tag(s): art history (69)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning station or center during a unit on printmaking or the evolution of prints. Allow students to examine the activity in cooperative learning groups, before allowing them to create their own prints!

This Italian site offers an introductory, museum-by-museum tour of Florence, providing historical background and samples of collections for each location. Good introductory reference for an art or history project, or for a basic introduction to the collections. Easily navigable by students.

tag(s): museums (49)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Renaissance art in Europe. There is art that encompasses other time periods, but a good majority of it is from the Renaissance era. Allow students to peruse the site in cooperative learning groups, with the intentions of presenting their own summary of what they read on the site. Have students use a mapping tool such as Mapskip (reviewed here) to create a map of local landforms (with audio stories and pictures included)!

tag(s): painting (66), sculpture (21)

In the Classroom

Use some of the images on this site to serve as a visual discovery activity during a unit on the Renaissance. Select 3-5 of the more powerful images, placing them on a PowerPoint slideshow. Displaying each image for about 1-2 minutes over the interactive whiteboard or projector, have students jotting down what they observe and infer about the Renaissance based on each individual image. (For help with a graphic organizer, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).) After the class has observed all of the images, have a class discussion tying in what students saw to the trends in art and culture that characterize the Renaissance. This is a refreshing non-lecture method in introducing students to the Renaissance in a World History classroom.

tag(s): painting (66), sculpture (21)

In the Classroom

Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of the Italian Renaissance. This site offers biographical information about Michelangelo, in addition to images of some of his work. Share this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector to show students some of the images created by the artist. Within the teacher resources page there is a search option that allows you to search their resources for specific words and phrases. This would be a great tool for students working on research projects or papers as the results will be similar to a google search, without the junk. For this use, save the site as a favorite on your teacher web page or wiki to allow students to access it in and out of the classroom.

This site, from the Smithsonian Institution's "Art to Zoo" series, offers a complete introduction to Japan and its arts, including discussion ideas and lesson activities. All materials are available as downloadable Adobe Acrobat PDF files, so you can print out the entire unit. (A color printer works best, of course.) You can download the Adobe Acrobat reader from the TeachersFirst Toolbox.

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lesson plans that are offered on this website, as they come with pages of vocab, student work, discussion questions, and closing questions. In a unit about early Japanese history, share the "color inserts" on an interactive whiteboard or projector, to show students the cultural history. These images would be a great introduction into a discussion on arts reflection of society, Confucianism, Taoism, and the symbolism of Japanese Calligraphy.

Here's an art site that combines excellent images with well-developed instruction. The approach used by this shockwave-enhanced site is engaging enough for younger students, yet includes enough detail and information for more serious, older art students. The comparisons between impressionist and classical technical styles are particularly interesting.
