This site provides over 20 enlargeable images of Michelangelo's works with small amounts of both English and Italian text. Useful for art history or image ideas in studio art.

tag(s): painting (65), sculpture (19)

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.

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.

tag(s): japan (60), japanese (45)

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.

tag(s): france (37), french (91)

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 impressionism. Save the site on the classroom computers, and have students look at it in cooperative learning groups or pairs. An excellent project would be to have students create online posters making a simple painting of one subject from both artistic points of view using a tool like Doodle.ly, reviewed here. Bookmark this site for information about impressionist artists and characteristics of the period

This is a beautifully-designed on-line exhibition which shows Himalayan artistic and cultural items in stunning detail. The narrative explains the significance of the items in Tibetan culture while explaining some of this history of this ancient land. Suitable for inclusion in any survey of oriental or east Asian art and culture.

tag(s): china (63), india (32)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource for a picture-walk in your classroom during a lesson on early Himalayan/Indian Culture. Select 10-15 of the most striking images of this site, print, and hang around the classroom at designated areas. Have students rotate between pictures, every 30-45 seconds, jotting down what they observe and infer. This activity works best if the images selected reflect different aspects of the culture - from agriculture, class-systems, economy, etc. If looking for a graphic organizer to structure the notes more, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

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.

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.

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.
