Interactive Art Sites/Resources

A collection of sites/resources that would be good to use for an studio art/art history course.

Women in Art

Added 03/18/2011
Beautiful video showing paintings of women through the ages. I might use this as precursor to a lesson on portraits.

Johannes Vermeer's Woman Holding a Balance

Added 03/18/2011
This is an excellent resource for showing students HOW to look at a painting. Love how this illustrates Vermeer's composition. It would be ideal for students to view this interactive tutorial before seeing a Vermeer in person.

Escher and the Droste Effect

Added 03/18/2011
Great site for getting ideas about the recursion in Escher's drawings.

Explore Leonardo's Studio

Added 03/18/2011
This simulation gives me good ideas for creating my own simulations -- my own renderings in flash of artists' studios -- or to create a virtual gallery.

The Cave of Lascaux

Added 03/18/2011
Great way to actually imagine yourself as a prehistoric artist -- in the cave -- creating the paintings. It also could be a good introduction to a discussion on "why do artists paint?"
