The art history resources index page will lead you to thousands of historically oriented resources. This site includes links to visual arts, performing arts, antiques, literature, architecture, and film. An Arts Search engine is also included in the site. The student or teacher of Art History would find this site invaluable.

tag(s): art history (80)

In the Classroom

What is great about this site is that all artists are first organized by popular movement/time period, and then ABC order. Use this site to show specific examples of work done by an artist one is studying in the classroom. For history teachers, this would be a good site to show how art reflects society. Select an art source that originates from the time period you are studying in class. Share the image with students on the interactive whiteboard or projector, and debate what you can learn from society based on this picture. For example, the image "Napoleon Bonaparte Visiting the Plague-Stricken in Jaffa" by Antoine-Jean Gros. From that image you can pull out that there was a plague, the differences in class, and the impact of war on French society. While it might sound lofty, the right image can show these kind of details and can show the broadened definition of what can constitute as a primary or secondary source.

Appropriate for teachers and parents of children all ages. This Crayola site has a wealth of information for parents, teachers and students. The areas included are; techniques, lessons (for parents and teachers), dream makers, products, forums, and contests. The "Dream Maker" program is a year long theme program for grades k-6. There is a nominal charge for the teacher's guide. An excellent site! This site is maintained by the Crayola Company.

tag(s): drawing (75)

In the Classroom

This website is perfect for teachers in need of holiday crafts. Under "Arts and Crafts" there is a section that lists holidays, and provides a wealth of information under each one. Pick a project, and share it on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Students will love the examples provided, and keeping the directions up will solve a lot of time for the teacher. Include this site on your teacher web page to allow parents to access, as there are a lot of activities that could also be done at home!

Here's a nice resource for retrieving short bios and explanations of people and events in the history of art, music, and other cultural disciplines. While the write-ups aren't remarkable, the use of time lines and other graphical devices helps users understand the relationship of the selection to other events and issues. You'll need the Macromedia Flash/Shockwave player, available from the TeachersFirst Toolbox.

tag(s): biographies (91), news (260)

In the Classroom

While the information is not exactly encyclopedia worthy, this site is an interesting way to connect cultural figures together. Use this site as a way to get students interested to continue further research on cultural figures. Provide the site as a resource for any one working on a research project.

tag(s): colors (77), drawing (75)

In the Classroom

Ignore the advertising; the site content is worth it. This is a great website for Kindergarten teachers to access if ever in need of a quick project. There is information on centers, drama, art, etc and all can be set up in a relatively short period of time. Include it on your teacher web page for parents to access, as it provides at-home ideas that parents would also find useful!

Combining history, math, culture, art/design, and community awareness, this unit uses the quilt as a tool toward understanding African American culture. Students are introduced to the African homeland, the "story quilts" of Harriet Powers, and the significance of quilt-making in African American society. Individual quilt squares are designed and sown together to create a "story quilt" for the entire class.

A teacher could quickly and easily retrieve African American art examples from this site which could be incorporated in Social Science, Art or History classes. Especially useful in multicultural studies.

This is a web game for kids which explores Van Gogh's paintings and style, complete with examples and commentary. The structure of the site encourages students to understand both what and why Van Gogh created his impressionist masterpieces. Great supplementary activity for an art class, or an independent exploration for the extra-curious.

Here is a collection of superb images of Italian sculpture. The catalogue is by artist, and there are special sections on the cities of Florence and Rome. This site is in Italian, but since it's image intensive it's not hard to navigate using the artists' names. Definitely worth a try for art and art history classes.

Have students try out this site on individual computers, or as a learning center. The most effective way to use this site is to allow students to work on it in pairs so they can easily assist each other. This would be an interesting addition to any lesson plan on origami, or in a language arts class, during a unit on a book such as "The Paper Crane."

Discovered in December, 1994, this cave holds multiple cave paintings available on the site as enlargeable images. These images could provide visual stimulation for art lessons on primitive art. (vocabulary is high level, images good for all ages) -

tag(s): france (37), painting (65)

In the Classroom

Use the images on this site to create a visual discovery activity in your classroom, introducing the topic of prehistoric cave drawings. Select 3-5 images from this site, choosing the most powerful and moving images. Placing the images on individual slides, allow students 1-2 minutes to observe each image. During that time period, students should be taking notes based on what they observe, predict and infer about each image. The more powerful and detailed the image is, the more information students can take out. After the class has observed all the chosen images, have a class discussion based on the notes students took. This is a great way to introduce content in a way that gets students thinking, as well as avoiding the typical lecture format.
