This is an excellent museum-based website readily usable in art or humanities courses where the teacher has internet access. I was very impressed with the current exhibitions area call "In Focus: Still Life" at http://www.getty.edu/art/exhibitions/focus_still_life/ The information was both conceptual and historical. The photos of the artwork are well done, and there are even various audio clips. Very nice. I hope that they keep these topical internet collections available after the exhibit ends.
I use such sites in college humanities courses where I have internet access on a computer connected to an overhead projector.

discovered this sight. It has a lot of information for a teacher, especially one
that teaches in an art magnet school. I like that I can search for lessons and
they are already planned out. The lessons provided were easy to follow and
complete. They even provide artwork to go along with the lesson.
Quality of content: The content is wonderful. The concepts are easy for my 4th
grade students to grasp. I will be using this site as a reference in my
Potential Effectiveness: This site could add to my students understanding of the
arts. Specifically the Visual Arts, this is the area I concentrated my search
Ease of using materials: Very easy to use and find information.

The rich information and material relevant to artwork which is a very useful teaching materials
for teachers. The topic of each lesson can be a
stimulus and also help students develope the knowledge of the culture and society.
Lesson plan--Teaching Landmarks, grade level 4-12
is quite interesting to students. In this activity, studetns can think of their own landmarks or the landmarks are special to them.
Students can use their imagination-- the part that appeals me to apply the topic.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching--Yes, I think it can effectively be a teaching tool in class because of its various artworks and image,
which usually students would pay more attention
on it. Both the teacher and the students can have
a wonderful trip of artworks.
