Art and history teachers be amazed. Google’s Art Project is bringing famous museums and artworks to you.
What a way to inspire your students! Show them around some of the world’s most famous museums, view brilliant artworks closer than you could ever get in ‘real life’, or get your students to create their own collections, that they are then able to share. Below is a close up of Vincent Van Gogh’s The Bedroom. It is truly breathtaking. What a way to teach technique.
You can have virtual tours of rooms in places such as Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam), The National Gallery of London, and the Palace of Versailles (Versailles). This is a fantastic resource that can take you places and show you things that you and your students may never see otherwise.
