See annotated details of ancient and more recent weavings from many cultures using the interactive "exhibits" of the museum. See work from Egypt, Kashmir, Persia, and many more. Decode some of the iconography in Asian carpets. Some exhibits are text-heavy, while others offer many plates and details for your art students to study and use as references. World cultures classes will be able to envision ancient times by looking at the beautiful images on this site.

tag(s): archeology (32)

In the Classroom

Include this on your classroom computer Favorites when students are beginning a weaving or printmaking unit so they can find inspiration in the graphical patterns and story-telling elements. This would also be a great way to introduce a weaving unit or a unit on ancient Asian civilizations on a projector.

Take virtual tour of the famous cave paintings of Lascaux in France, read about their discovery, learn to interpret the drawings, and find out fragile environment of the caves. The site itself is beautiful to explore, letting you experience the caves with a virtual "flashlight" as you enter.

tag(s): archeology (32), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Use a projector to introduce the site, if you must, but allow your students to navigate this one alone or with a partner. The thrill of discovery through the site's design is more than worth any management challenges. Give the students a specific set of questions to answer and things to find, if you are concerned that they may not stay on task. Compare these primitive drawings to those found in other cultures and continents as you discuss common themes in religion and mythology.

Create and collaborate with artists around the web using this online image montage and poetry tool. Each image is an ongoing compilation of other images, arranged in a grid. Add your own images and poetry or simply browse those made by others. Contributors join for free. The images often have surreal appearances and more avant-garde poetry. This site could be a dicussion starter in an art or creative writing class or a study in the diverse uses of web 2.0 collaboration in a computer class.

tag(s): poetry (226)

In the Classroom

Share selected images on a projector as writing prompts or to open a "what is art" discussion. You could also use the images simply as examples of montages before a hands-on project, though this approach misses the clickable depths of each image. Teachers should be aware that this site does not limit image content, so some nudity may occasionally appear in the images. Check you art program's guidleines for such images and/or maintain teacher control over which ones are shown in class, if this will be a problem in your shcool.

The tragic story of the lost princess Anastasia is often of interest to students and can serve as an introduction to the story of the Russian Revolution. The Alexander Palace site certainly illustrates the extreme wealth and extravagance of the Romanov court and how this brought about the Russian Revolution and the rise of communism. This site includes everything: diaries and letters, photographs of the palace pets, and information about the life of Tsar Alexander, the last tsar of Russia. Although the level of detail would be very useful for someone doing research into Russian history, the chief benefit of this site for classroom teachers is its photographs of the palace and its treasures. There are photo tours of the palace and each of its rooms. Of particular interest are zoom-able photos of eleven jeweled and decorated Faberge eggs. The site would also be useful for art teachers in illustrating the craftsmanship and beauty of the Faberge eggs, perhaps before asking students to design their own. This site requires FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): eggs (6), evolution (102), russia (38), russian (27)

In the Classroom

Send your students on a tour, looking for evidence to support a poitn of view about tsarist Russia. Or try a scavenger hunt where students find answers to specific questions. Even simpler, use a projector to give a "tour" as the opening activity of your unit, then have students revisit the site in individual computers later on in the unit for specific research.

This is the starting page for a collection of five lesson plans to accompany the series "How Art Made the World." The programs and lessons examine the use of art to communicate - whether about religion, politics, even advertising - as societies and cultures have developed. Each lesson includes web links to examples, but surprisingly, the site itself lacks much of the visual impact one might expect to find.

tag(s): images (271), propaganda (12)

In the Classroom

These lessons would be great interdisciplinary "idea banks" for classes in art, world cultures, or government.

These inventive individuals - with little or no formal training - have fashioned unique masterpieces that reflect their personal visions. After taking an interactive tour through these creative environments, students can click on the "Create Your Own" link to produce a paradise of their own from more than 150 virtual objects. Completed works can be emailed or submitted to the "Off the Map" online gallery. Check out the "For the Classroom" link for a selection of related activities organized by grade level.

In the Classroom

Perhaps you have a courtyard or other area around your school and community that could use a facelift. This site might just provide some ideas for involving students in a real-life creative adventure.

Quick thinking and nimble fingers are needed in these fast-paced, off-beat, art-based games. Enter the gallery, read the brief instructions, and prepare to play. Each game is different, and the longer you play, the tougher they become! Color mixing, sculpture, spatial representation, and sequencing are among the content areas addressed.

Imagine the fun and challenge of painting-by-number - without the mess. This unique site provides a virtual coloring experience with lots of bells and whistles. Choose a category and level of difficulty, check out the tools (zoom, timer), and start the recreation of a masterpiece. Themes include holidays, historic figures, works by well-known artists, famous places, and so much more. You won't have to stretch to find a way to link this hands-on activity with a curricular area. Use to build number recognition and mouse skills with younger students, or help older students recognize the complexity of color, shading, and composition.

tag(s): painting (66)

In the Classroom

Great activity to make available on a classroom computer as a reward, or incorporate into a study of a represented artist. Challenge secondary art students to create their own "paint-by-number" activity and convert to a scanned and printable activity for younger students.

This is a "just for fun" site that harkens back to the days when students used to created their own animated pictures by scribbling little drawings on the bottom of their tablets and flipping through the pages. Use this virtual tablet to sketch a series of images then click the "eye" button to watch the animation. Tour the Flip Book gallery - but beware - there may be some animations inappropriate for young children. Even if you activate the "Filter Mature Content" feature in "Preferences," you must still be vigilant!

tag(s): artists (76), drawing (78), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Take some time to poke around to find the gem that will spice up your art classroom. This is a great site to use in the elementary classroom, and in art electives classes in middle grades and high school. Be sure to share it with other teachers on your campus and put a link to this tool on your class website for students to use at home. Use a visual blogging tool such as Check This, reviewed here, to upload the students' art work. The students can blog about their work and even create an online portfolio. Host an art show at your school for families and the communities to showcase the students' creativity. Your students can describe their work as visitors explore the gallery. In a language arts class have students brainstorm to analyze the character(s), setting, and situation of a painting and create an original story. Explore this site before a trip to an art museum.

Before turning your students loose in the art room, give them some virtual hands-on experience with this outstanding online art studio. The most impressive feature on the site is the "pot throw," which actively involves students in each step of the artistic process. Mistakes and misjudgments are allowed, and help is always one mouse click away. After forming the pot, students can glaze it, place it in the kiln, set the temperature, and await their finished creation. Instructions for creating a coil pot and slab self-portrait are also included. Just for fun, students can try out the interactive "Build a Face Jug" activity.
