Want to visit the great art museums?

Google Art Project

-You can create your own gallery! (and send things to your friends etc.)

-You can see so closely to notice details that you’d never see even in person, from events to brush strokes.

See how it came about…

Please share with your classmates your favorite “art” by adding a comment to this blog entry.  If you want to link things or attach pics that don’t seem to be fully accomodated, feel free to email me, and we’ll add your stuff via blog (by editting this entry).

 Also, if you have friends who are writing or doing good art, please feel free to include them and link to their blogs or sites as well as to scan in their work.  If YOU write or paint or ????, please feel free to share all that too!
