Editorial description(s):

From School Library Journal
Introductory chapters explore the history of art education and critical-thinking skills along with practical suggestions for utilizing the Internet in art research. The majority of the book, however, provides exhaustive lists of Web sites that feature works of art, biographies of artists, background information, critical reviews, scholarly treatment of art topics, and museums. Arranged chronologically, with an emphasis on Western art, each chapter provides briefly annotated Web addresses complete with date of access, a summary of the sites, and discussion questions and activities. A list of frequently used general resources is especially helpful and includes art-education programs and associations. Although it is inevitable that some sites will no longer be accessible or valid, this substantial resource will undoubtedly set the standard for using the Internet in art education.

A first-rate and "user friendly" instructional guide, August 8, 2003
Compiled and written by Pamela J.
