Here is a great way to have students write about art. Go to Artsconnected,
the Mpls. Art Institute / Walker Art Center combined interactive web site.
Under Art Gallery, click on Art Collector. This feature allows you to
create a collection from the 2 museums' artwork (over 5000 images already in
digitized form), and create text boxes next to the artwork selected that the
students can write in. Those collections are given a URL address that allow
the student to share their collections. If you are interested in more
details of how this works, I will be hosting an online discussion on
TAPPEDIN Tuesday, April 16 from 6-7:30 CST.
If you are visiting TAPPEDIN, it is suggested that you arrive 15 minutes
early to get acclimated. BJ Berquist, a contributor to this listserv, helps
to facilitate the art discussions. She or someone else already on duty will
help you find your way around.
