How could you use Arts Days in your classroom?

"This Day In the Arts" (or Arts Days as we lovingly refer to it) is a resource that attributes an arts-related event to each day of the year. For example, today's Arts Day is: http://artsedge.kennedy-center.org/arts-days/june/26.aspx and you can learn about make-up artist **** Smith in celebration of his birthday.

 

We'd love to hear how people use Arts Days in their teaching. What types of activities do/would you do around this resource?

 

You can also see Arts Days on the Educators/main page of ARTSEDGE here: http://artsedge.kennedy-center.org/educators.aspx

    Check out Art Babble, a resource for art history students and teachers.  It is a video website designed and maintained by the Indianapolis Museum of Art to provide a place for people to learn about the creation of art, artists, and collections through quality video productions.

     

    Art Babble provides videos related to many forms of and formats for art. Browse the video channels and you'll find videos covering a wide array of topics including abstract art, European Art and Design, African Art, graphic design, glass, sculpture, surrealism, and much more.

     

    What do you think of this resource?  How can you use it with your students to help them appreciate art?
