Mark Harden's Artchive

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Laura Franklin (Faculty), Jan 26, 2001
Comment: I have used the Artchive to project works of art on the theme that I am covering
in my language class. For example, if I am covering physical descriptions, I
might show students a portrait by
Van Gogh, Munch or Monet. I would then have the students do an oral exercise
describing the figure in the painting. If my subject is the family, I might
choose a painting by Botero and do a similar oral exercise. The paintings in the
Artchive provide good stimulus for writing as well.

Technical Remarks:

Using a projector and a large screen in the classroom makes the Artchive a
useful teaching tool.
