Do you read Design Mom? I just love Gabrielle and I am in awe of the incredible experience her family is having in France this year. Today she posted about taking her kids to the Louvre. Amazing! As an Art History Major I have only seen textbook pictures of the incredible artwork there. Her post has me thinking more about the little field trip I will be taking with my boys and their friends during the spring class. It may not be the Louvre but it will still be a great experience! Have you found a museum to visit yet?
Have you heard of the Google Art Project? I just found out about it myself and I am so excited about it! The brilliant people at Google have visited museums from all around the world and have taken pictures of hundreds of amazing pieces of art from those museums. The pictures are incredible quality, and can be zoomed in to show details. As someone that loves learning about art from all over the world I could not be more in awe of the Google Art Project. This will be a resource I will use often to teach about art. Check it out!
