Greetings Art Educators,

I have added three new links to Incredible Art
Resources (from the Scout Report)

3. Encyclopedia Mythica
http://www.pantheon.org/mythica.html

.... Here visitors can peruse areas devoted to
mythology, folklore, bestiary, heroes, and take a look
at some genealogy tables, which tend to be quite
helpful.....The site has a number of other features,
including a place for visitor feedback and a
search feature. Rounding out the site are lists of
feast days from the ancient world, along with a list
of Roman deities and their Greek counterparts. [KMG]

This is on World Cultures and Ancient Civilzation

7. Race & Place: An African-American Community in the
Jim Crow South:
Charlottesville, VA [RealOnePlayer]
http://www.vcdh.virginia.edu/afam/raceandplace/index.html
....This rather noteworthy site.... intends
"to connect race with place" through offering this
nice multimedia archive of digitized materials
including oral histories, political broadsides,
photographs, maps, and letters. The time and place
that is profiled is Charlottesville, Virginia, from
the late 1880s until the middle of the 20th
century. The community that is profiled is the
African-American community, which was effectively
segregated through the use of the notorious "Jim Crow"
laws.... [KMG]

This was added to African Art and History

13. Electronic Biologica Centrali-Americana
http://www.sil.si.edu/DigitalCollections/bca/

This electronic edition of the Biologica
Centrali-American raises the bar, both in terms of its
thoroughness and the collaborative efforts that helped
create this quite compelling collection. The original
58 volumes of this remarkable work of natural history
were created and composed during the 19th
century in an effort to identify, categorize, and
document the flora and fauna of Meso-America.....
[KMG]

This was added to Math-Science-Art and Oaxacan animals
lesson plan.
