Eyes on Art Revised

Sincere apologies to those of you who may have visited Eyes on Art:

http://www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/art/art.html

and run into too many broken links. The shifting world of the Web struck
hard and I've now mirrored or found new links where needed. As of 9/19/96
all links should work (let's see how long this lasts!)

I encourage teachers who use "learning to look," DBAE, or art
history/analysis strategies to look into the later activities (Visual
Glossary, Miles of Styles, and 2 Views 4 U). If you want to challenge
students to critique contemporary artworks (of varied pedigree) take a look
at "Your True View," a culminating activity where students are the art
experts. Lastly, I hope you have fun trying the Eyes in Art Quiz.

Also, if you are interested, here are two questions for you:

1) would you be interested in having students who are doing the activities
participate in a listserve to post their responses, ideas, etc.?

2) If you don't have wide spread Internet access in your schools, would you
be interested in a downloadable version of Eyes on Art to load on computers
off-line and run it from the hard drives? The Web site with all its images
would run (I'm guessing now) about 7 mgs. Obviously, loading the
images/pages would be much faster from a hard drive than a modem or 56K
line.

Let me know what you think.

Tom
