Museum of Online Museums

Recently, I was compiling a list of online Art Galleries and came across this site.  I then realised the site had done it for me.  It contains an extensive list of Art Galleries and Museums available online.  The trick is to find the one you want.

Language of Design Presentation

This is a great presentation for Art teachers.

Feathered Friends

A great ceramic activity is to design your own bird and then build it.

• To start look at different features of birds and different types. Good ones to look at are toucans, parrots, flamingos, peacocks, pelicans or any bird with a distinguishing feature.

• Look at bird designs and logos such as Twitter.



• Look Mythical birds such as the Phoenix

• Design a bird by adding features of other birds or design your own.

• Make a hollow body first by joining two pinch pots. Then add the bird’s features. Don’t forget to add an air hole into the body.

• Once fired glaze or paint and varnish.
