Here are some great websites I found from the "tech4arted" article of the January 2013 edition of school arts: This months theme was 'Place'

Imaging walking into M.C. Escher's Ascending and Descending...Better yet, have your students imagine it, and then show it to them!

'Tribute to Escher'

The website 360Cities is a pretty cool site in and of itself and is worth checking out

Next up is the site Build Your Wild Self , sponsored by the New York Zoo's and Aquariums, which I LOVED! The best part for me is that at the very end when you are finished it tells you a little about the features you have chosen to create your 'wild self' This would be a fantastic jumping off point for a surreal project or a science collaboration!

 Third is the American Visionary Art Museum Website.  A treasure trove of unique folksy art.

Lastly we have the Washington Post's First Ever "Peep" Show- a contest of creative dioramas inspired by everyone's favorite yellow marshmellows: Peeps.  These are toooooo cute! (Side note: not every image is 'child-appropriate)
