The Sixth Day of Christmas

On the sixth day of Christmas the Fieldlearning blog gave to me, six websites to explore art.

The National Gallery of Art has some GREAT interactive activities like the paint box and the Collage Machine.

While you are there, be sure to check out the family and children's guides to different artists.

The Met's guides for children are also very cool. They have more than the NGA and it includes guides like "The Art of Chess" and "Behind the Scences at the Met".

Their latest interactive learning exploration "How Van Gogh Made His Mark" is nicely done; a lot of reading.

The Allentown Art Museum has a nice interactive educational website, The Renaissance Connection.

The Museum of Modern Art has a site for kids and one for teens. At first the kids one looked hoaky, but as I got deeper into it, it was original and valuable. You can make up poems about a work of art, match colors in the painting, or learn facts about the artist. It is all narrated, so even younger children can follow.

I know, that is technically seven links.
