Site Map - A list of all the pages with annotations, yes, all of the pages on this site.

Teachers - Make sure you check out the Assignments section which provides exercises, projects, support resources, and rubrics.

Historical and Cultural Context - provides an overview of art movements and the context in which they developed. We have not covered every movement or period, rather selected snippets to help provide students with an opportunity to explore the elements that have influenced other artists in their quest for expressing personal voice. As with all of our work, this site remains a work in progress.

Wow, validation.
