Spring is now rolling on. I worked on my garden these past few days, ordered some plants from the garden catalogs and mulched. I decided that this is the season to introduce Cezanne . I am going to discuss and I use the YouTube videos for classes, and web museums to present artists a lot. Many art colleges have students put together videos about artists and post them on youtube. Just reminder never use a video without previewing it first. A few of my favorites are:
Frida Kahlo: awesome morphing of self portraits montage the kids love it!
The whistler's Mother with Mr. Bean part 1 and part 2 I use this for introducing art preservation, and critiquing art with my 7th grade just a fun last class activity. I use a spoofing video for the lesson how can you recreate Whistler's Mother painting.
YouTube is a wonderful tool for the classroom.
