Subject: art web sites/compilation:

I cleaned this up and tried not to duplicate - are the sites addresses
correct? Thanks - Linda in NM

I found a good site for M. C. Escher and tessellations. Don't know if it's
been shared before or not.
I know most of you have this info. as did I, but I wanted it in one place so
I could delete stuff. Sent with credits to contributors. Linda

http://library.advanced.org/16661/escher/tessellations.1.html

thanks for the Escher site. here's a really good site for tessellations. it
is so good that i have learned many different systems for creating them and
the students have done some brilliant work. i don't know how to create a
link but here's the address:
web.inter.nl.net/hcc/Hans.Kuiper/index.html

Dear colleagues I have been working with a great web site in regard to
working with tessellations. I'd like to share this with you.
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/sum95/suzanne/links.html I also found a
fabulous source of tessellation lesson plans at a math site =
http://mathcentral.uregina.ca/RR/database/RR.09.96/archamb1.html Since I
work at the elementary level in art, I have scaled these suggested plans
down greatly, but what a help. A huge help in my understanding as well I
haven't tried this yet, but thought some of you might be interested....

Nast, New Orleans & Degas
http://www.homeworkcentral.com/Top8/files.htp?fileid=3D65896&use=3Dhc

The work of the illustrious cartoonist of Harper's Weekly is exhibited in
this growing collection about Thomas Nast. The Nast pages are a feature of
Harp Week, the fabulous online collection of decades of issues of Harper's
Weekly, which are a prime example of how the Internet can bring history and
its tangible assets to students. The mini-section called "Interactivity
Among Thomas Nast, New Orleans and Edgar Degas" is a confection of art and
history, which includes the explanation that one of Nast's famous anti-Tweed
cartoons made a major contribution to Degas' classic painting the "Cotton
Office." Also here we learn that in 1867, Nast, a born multimediaist,
created the Grand Caricaturama, a presentation of 33 paintings each 8 feet
high. As seated audiences watched in delight, the pictures were moved across
the stage, accompanied by a spoken narration and relevant piano pieces. Now
we do that with clicks and digital audio.

this will take you to the web site on Gardner's Project Zero's page.
there is a site from MOMA on teaching visual language curriculum. To find
out more about project zero just click on the bottom and it will take you to
the home page.

Subject: Howard gardner in his own words To read about Howard garner and to
find out how to invite him to speak at your school(this century???) LOL
http://www.pz.harvard.edu/PIs/HG.htm

I checked out the site listed below, http://artcyclopedia.com. It is well
worth the visit and a bookmark. I plan to add it as a link on the AENJ web
site, "http://www.aenj.org" , internet resources page and my
school's internet resource page.

We invite you to browse our online store http://artmaterials.net
and hope you'll find many good products and even better prices.

Chinese Opera
http://www.homeworkcentral.com/Top8/highschool1.htp?sectionid=3D16785

In unique, new ways the Internet can be used to create artistic confections
of theory, history, tradition, and performance. The links in this section
include classification of roles, music and instruments, costuming and stage
properties, masks, and links to several Chinese opera companies. The facial
make-up link lists the color symbolism of Chinese opera, which strikes a
full chord of human character: -red for valor, sincerity and
selfishness -black for toughness and fortitude -yellow for bravery and
cruelty -purple for loyalty, simpleness and honesty -blue for toughness
and bravery -green for stubbornness and irritation

Television News Archive
http://www.homeworkcentral.com/Top8/files.htp?fileid=3D64488&use=3Dhc

The Television News Archive collection at Vanderbilt University is
theworld's most extensive and complete archive of television news.
Thecollection holds more than 30,000 individual network evening news
broadcasts and more than 9,000 hours of special news-related programming. In
August of 1968, the archive began taping network news. Abstracts of each
day's news broadcasts for every year from 1968 to the present are available
here on a clickable calendar chart. This is a radically new historical
source in several ways. Perhaps the most astounding aspect is the almost
instantaneous access for anyone with an Internet connection to what happened
at a specific time in the past.

couple of art sites you may or may not know about. Thanks to my friends
who share with me. Linda

Art Safari
http://www.homeworkcentral.com/Top8/files.htp?fileid=3D68385&use=3Djr

This is "An Adventure in Looking for Children and Adults" from New York
City's Modern Museum of Art. As questions display about paintings from the
MOMA collection, the audio encourages expressiveness: "Write about what you
see, and use your imagination."

This is the National Portrait Gallery.

I like this quote on creativity and parameters: "Creativity requires
limits, for the creative act arises out of the struggle of human beings with
and against that which limits them."
Rollo May
