We create art instruction DVDs for adults. I am very interested in how we could create online resources that would enable Kids k-12 to excel in growing their art interests. Please send me links to websites that you think are particularly good at encouraging K-12 age kids be excited about building their art skills. Thanks Jim

Jim,

In my many years of classroom teaching it's been my experience that the online resources that most inspire students are the websites of working artists. As an example of one excellent website that my students loved check out Tim Prentice at http://www.timprentice.com/index_framev2.html

It has also been my experience that most students would rather smear the paint, sculpt the clay, pull the print than experience those things through a digital portal.
