While lesson planning yesterday, I was thinking to myself how nice it would be to find a website where you could type in some sort of keyword search for artworks and find what you needed to use as a resource in your lessons. I was looking for an artwork that demonstrated the use of different types of lines, and so, I googled 'lines in artwork' and I came across a website called 'artsconnected.org' and they have a link that is called 'the artists toolkit'. Not only did they have short child-friendly animations on some of the elements and principles of art, but they also had a link to the artsconnected site which is a database of resources where you can type in a keyword and scan through tons of hit of artwork examples that contain that topic. Ka-ching! I was so happy to stumble upon this site! So if you're ever in the same predicament as I often find myself, than this could be a great resource for you too!
