This is an on-line museum that contains a rotating selections of photographic exhibitions, including contemporary photographers and early photos as well. There is a wide variety of content in numerous artistic styles. This would be a great place for students in photography or design classes to explore how others use light, shape, and composition in creating images.

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 (62), 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 (62)

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).

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 (85)

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 (72)

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!
