National Gallery of Art’s Children’s Video Tour

December 1, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The National Gallery of Art’s Children’s Video Tour – Time Travel is an exceptional online resource that takes students on a tour into famous paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, Rembrandt Van Rijn, Leonardo Da Vinci, Claude Monet and more. Each featured painting has a video that brings the painting to life by providing commentary about the artist, the model(s), and interesting details about each work of art. Students can explore “Saint George and the Dragon” by Raphael or learn details about Mary Cassatt’s career by clicking on her painting, “The Boating Party.” If you can’t take your students to the museum, this is a wonderful way to bring the museum to your students.
