Hi! It’s Saturday, January 19, 2013 and time for Art at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 9 and up (approximately, with adult supervision)
The Museum of Web Art sponsors this website that offers a free virtual tour of online galleries and exhibits featuring artistic renderings created for websites, along with a Kid’s Wing featuring interactive games and stories.
When you get to the site, simply follow the directions and once you’ve entered the virtual museum, click on the “continue” button (located in the upper right corner of each page) to explore:
*Gateways – See an exhibit of artistic “splash pages” or opening pages of a few websites.
*Wallpaper Exhibit – See textile designs for web pages from decorative to functional.
*Buttons Exhibit – See examples of a few fun , interactive buttons installed on websites.
*Installations Exhibit – Enjoy examples of interactive designs on websites.
*Kids Wing – Play some interactive games and puzzles, and read some interactive stories.
This is not an extensive website and it seems a bit dated. Frankly, in my web explorations, I’ve seen better examples of art blending with technology than those featured at this site. Nevertheless, it’s a simple way to introduce the concept of the art-tech connection, and the kids will enjoy playing the games.
