How I Use It
Right now, we are using the Google Art Project in our Advanced Placement European History class. Students are creating their own art galleries for specific art eras. Students are required to write well detailed captions for their artwork in their galleries. This is a year-long project as students will create a gallery for each period of art in European history. This enriches their understanding of European culture.
My Take
I really like the Google Art Project because it supplies a venue for students to learn about all time periods of Art History, see the actual artwork, write about it and create their own galleries. It enables students to virtually travel to all different cultural destinations online.
