Ideas Take Form Online. (ArtEd Online)


Walkup, Nancy, School Arts


How can you use Internet resources to encourage your students' ideas to take form and develop from motivation through conception to execution? It is my belief that students need experience with as much visual imagery as possible to understand that the same idea can be conceptualized and executed in a myriad of meaningful ways. Students also need accurate and significant historical or background content about art. Such an approach to learning encourages students to feel free to develop their own individual interpretations of a theme or idea. Teachers and students can use the Web as part of this method to provide rich visual images and content.

You might begin an instructional unit by presenting students with an overarching theme or concept and directing them to conduct their own research online, or provide sites you have previously chosen, depending on the age of the students. For example, I have used the following websites as part of a unit on the art and culture of the Middle Ages. Possibilities of focus include cathedrals, castles, stained glass, illuminated manuscripts, tapestries, gargoyles, and unicorns.
