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.

Discover the many works of Dante Gabriel Rossett - painter, designer, writer, and translator. On the menu at the top click exhibits and objects to find a varied list that categorizes Rossett's works: Double Works, Pictures, Poems, Prose, Translations, Books, Manuscripts, Correspondence, and Material Design. Scroll down the page to find biographical information about this man who some say was the most important and original artistic force in the second half of the nineteenth century in Great Britain.

tag(s): art history (81)

In the Classroom

Introduce the exhibits and objects page with a projector or on an interactive whiteboard and have the students partner read the biographical information about Rossett. Have students take notes using Webnote, reviewed here; tell students to be sure to save the URL to share their notes and questions with you and their peers. Next show students how to navigate the exhibits and objects page. Ask partners or small groups to choose one topic from the list of Pictures, Poems, etc. Then, in your flipped or blended classroom (or at a computer center), have students explore on their own, continuing to take online notes. Take this a step further and allow pairs or small groups of students to share what they learned with their peers using an interactive infographic like Canva, reviewed here. Students can keep their work for future reference in a digital portfolio such as DIY, reviewed here.

This site includes an Andy Warhol section the leads to an interactive timeline of his life, Lesson plans, and Programs for groups of people like Community, Educators, Teens, LGBTQQ+, and lots of Warhol quotes throughout . The site is useful for examples for students studying contemporary art, or as an art history resource.

tag(s): art history (81), painting (65)

In the Classroom

In an art class, introduce Andy Worhol on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Use the lesson plans to concentrate on the details and techniques known about the artist's style. Encourage your students to create Warhol inspired works. Create a multimedia presentation on Warhol's art using one of many TeachersFirst Edge tools, reviewed here. Some tool suggestions are (click on the tool name to access the review): Visme, Adobe Spark, Plotagon, and My Simpleshow. Use this site as an example for creating projects for other artists, mathematicians, or scientists. Post a link for this site on your class website.

This site documents a Diego Rivera mural, Pan-American Unity, created in San Francisco in 1940 for an exposition there. The site includes both overviews of the mural panels as well as a video showing highly detailed segments of the artwork. An interesting presentation of this resource.

tag(s): painting (65)

In the Classroom

Read about the different panels in partners or small groups, or at a classroom computer center for students to access independently. Then consider having students watch the silent 15 minute video either at home or at the computer center as a small group, in partners, or independently. Have them write down questions about the part or parts they would like to know more about. This video isn't download-able or a YouTube or Vimeo, so the best way for students to identify the part(s) they're interested in would be to have them describe the part they want to know more about using a journaling tool like Penzu, reviewed here. With Penzu they can add their own artwork as illustrations. Instead of journaling, students could use a tool such as Screen-cast-o-matic, reviewed here, to capture the image on their screen and annotate it either in text or verbally.

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 (81)

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!

This Italian site offers an introductory, museum-by-museum tour of Florence, providing historical background and samples of collections for each location. Good introductory reference for an art or history project, or for a basic introduction to the collections. Easily navigable by students.

tag(s): museums (46)

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 as Zeemaps, reviewed here, to create a map of local landforms (with audio stories and pictures included)!

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 (34), french (88)

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 (65), 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).

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.

While the information is not exactly encyclopedia worthy, this site is an interesting way to connect cultural figures together.

The structure of the site encourages students to understand both what and why Van Gogh created his impressionist masterpieces.
