Three Innovative Arts Education Resources
Red Studio is the Museum of Modern’s Arts interactive and collaborative project with high school students in New York City. Exploring “issues and questions raised by teens about today’s modern art, working artists, and what goes on behind the scenes at a museum,” the site features interviews with artists and opportunities to make digital art. The image above was creative in Red Studio’s REMIX interactive collage tool.
Art Babble is like YouTube for art videos. This site was developed by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and features videos from partners including KQED, PBS’s Art:21, The San Jose Museum of Art, Yerba Buena Center of the Arts, and many more, including national and international organizations. Videos are organized by medium, location, themes, and time period. There is a special section specifically for educators with classroom-appropriate videos and resources.
Art Education 2.0 is a Ning networking web site initiated by professor and educator Craig Roland. It hosts a robust collection of resources and offers many opportunities for idea sharing and networking among fellow arts educators. Membership is free, and there are currently over 12,000 active members who upload ideas, videos, and photos to share with their global community of colleagues.
