tag(s): crafts (41), middle east (35)

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. 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 (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.

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 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!

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)!

This is an elegantly designed history of Michelangelo created by a web design firm by the same name. The presentation and content are both top-notch, making this one well worth a visit if you're studying Italian Renaissance art.

tag(s): painting (66), sculpture (22)

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.

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.
