Answers to (almost) All Your Art Questions

When I dis­cover some­thing new that I’m really excited about, I have to share it! One of my favorite web­sites is About.com. I’ve already blogged about their Art His­tory site, but I’ve since dis­cov­ered two more Art-related sites that they offer.… About.com:Painting and About.com:Drawing/Sketching.

If you have any inter­est in Art at all (and you wouldn’t be read­ing this if you didn’t), you can eas­ily lose track of time explor­ing these pages! They’re full of art demos and tuto­ri­als, tips for work­ing with a vari­ety of media, project ideas and much more. If you have ques­tions related to paint­ing or draw­ing, there’s a good chance you’ll find them answered here. These pages are geared more toward the adult artist, but it never hurts to add to your own Art knowl­edge, plus you’ll find ideas and infor­ma­tion you can use with your stu­dents as well. You’ll have to put up with a lit­tle adver­tis­ing (and an occa­sional typo), but there’s so much good stuff here, it’s well worth it!

Check out both of these sites and see what they have to offer. The photo above shows a fun project I found while perus­ing About.com:Painting, using a sin­gle 12 inch square of paper. Grades 4 and up would have a blast mak­ing these lit­tle books, and you could adapt it for a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent needs…. a unique hol­i­day greet­ing card, maybe? After all, it is get­ting to be that time of year!
