Dear Art Educators,

Many of you will be interested in viewing these online
videos....Featured in Scout Report January 25.

14. Los Angeles County Museum of Art: Videos and Podcasts [QuickTime,

Art lovers who can't make it down to 5905 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles
will enjoy mulling over some of the videos and podcasts presented on this
site. Currently, the site has over fifty different programs, and the Los
Angeles County Museum of Art will continue to add new programs over the
coming months. In the "Current Features" area, visitors can take a walk
through the new museum campus and also learn a bit about an exhibition that
highlights the work of Salvador Dali. Other visitors may be more interested
in the "Public Programs" area. Here they can listen to conversations and
dialogues with the likes of Anthony Hernandez, Ken Gonzales-Day, Jeff Koons,
and John Baldessari. Finally, the "Documentaries" area offers up profiles of
Jacob Lawrence, a group of contemporary potters, and noted fluorescent light
artist Dan Flavin. [KMG]

Here is a site to forward to the math people in your building.....

3. Interactives: 3D Shapes [Macromedia Flash Player]

How much liquid can that glass hold? What are the dimensions of that package
that's heading off to a friend overseas? Answers to both of those questions
(and many more) can be found in this lovely interactive feature on 3D shapes
created by experts at the Annenberg Media group. Visitors to this site will
learn about three-dimensional geometric shapes by examining a number of
objects through a number of interactive exercises and games. The materials
are divided into four sections, which include "3D Shapes", "Surface Area &
Volume", and "Platonic Solids". The "Platonic Solids" area is quite a bit of
fun, as visitors will get the opportunity to print out foldable shapes such
as a tetrahedron. A short fifteen question quiz that tests the materials
covered by these various activities rounds out the site. [KMG]
