I found this website to be very helpful for an introductory lesson on art and art history. It gives students an opportunity to read about various techniques and the best part was to be able to try out what they had learned. It helps to create a hand's on experience which will promote a better understanding of the basic elements of art.
The website was easy to use and move through. It was not too complicated, but I did find that the create your own art portion was limited in its choices. It didn't give the student any variations on what types of tools were available to create their artwork with. I think that could potentially bore a student.
