Religious Education and Art teachers, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
If topics such as Renaissance paintings, frescoes, Michelangelo, 16th Century art or the Book of Genesis are covered in class…take everyone on a virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel. More information can be found here, at Open Culture.
This experience is superior to observing two dimensional images in textbooks.
Click on the image below, Creation of Adam by Michelangelo, and enjoy your tour.
Does anyone have another virtual tour or know of a wiki collection that we could share?
It’s projects like this one, the Google Art Project, that epitomise the potential of web technology to take students beyond the classroom walls.
It’s awesome….go on a virtual tour and explore the world’s museums.
Zoom in and check out the finer details of famous paintings. In a museum today, you can never get close enough to paintings to see the painter’s brush strokes or cracks in the canvas of a 19th Century oil painting.
Visit this project and you can put together a collection of your favorites and share them with anyone…make sure the refreshments are served before your exhibition begins.
