DISCOVER THE MASTERPIECES OF THE WORLD WITH 'GOOGLE ART PROJECT."

DISCOVER THE MASTERPIECES OF THE WORLD WITH 'GOOGLE ART PROJECT." | SMART TINKER SCOOPS FOR PARENTS | Scoop.it
Google Art Project is an online platform through which the public can
access high-resolution images of artworks housed in the initiative’s
partner museums. The project was launched in 2011, in cooperation with 17
international museums, including the Tate Gallery, London; the 
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City; and the Uffizi, Florence.

The platform enables students to virtually tour partner museums’ galleries,
explore physical and contextual information provided about artworks, and
compile their own virtual collection. The "walk-through" feature of the
project uses Google's Street View technology.The virtual images of artworks
were reproduced at extremely high quality, and each partner museum selected
one artwork to be captured as a Gigapixel image (with over 1 billion 
pixels).

With great resources foreducatorsthere is literally no limit to what can be
done with this in the classroom. 

Google art Project will never substitute a trip to the Louvre in Paris but
it certainly will make you far more appreciative and understanding of what
is in front of you if you are lucky enough to get there in person.

Below is a video that  critiques a famous painting from the 1870's that you
could use with students in your history, literacy or art class to great
use.

Access Google Art Project here.

Valentine's Day Embroidery Hoop Art - Living Well Spending Less™ | SMART TINKER SCOOPS FOR PARENTS | Scoop.it
We are in full Little House mode over here, and I gotta say, I am loving every minute.  As I told Husband last night, our girls may never score a 1600 on their SAT, but my oh my, will they be able to sew, bake, & pickle like nobody’s business! Last week, inspired by one of the projects in the Little House Craft Book, Princess and I took it upon ourselves to learn embroidery.  It was something I have never done before either, so we learned together.  She was completely hooked almost immediately.  I was frankly amazed at how quickly she picked it up!  She proudly completed a practice sampler, ... read more
