Great online museum resource for kids: Show.Me

Website: show.me.uk

UK-based organization Culture 24 has a new project geared towards kids called “Show.Me.” It has tons of projects and articles written for kids ages 7-11. There is also a lot of information on the best museums to visit with kids and what to see when you get there.

The combination of great visuals and great content make this site a must visit for anyone involved in teaching children about history and the arts.

The Reading List: October 17, 2014 – The “Bringing it Back” Edition

The Reading List is our regular look at art-related essays and articles that have recently appeared on the web. After a hiatus of a couple months we are bringing it back and it will once again be a weekly feature of the Art Resources Project appearing each Friday.

The Art of Slowing Down in a Museum: I first noticed this New York Times piece when the MCA Chicago posted that it was an article a lot of their staff members had been reading.  It makes an argument for slowing your pace in a museum and avoiding the urge to speedwalk through a museum’s greatest hits.

Artists Report Back: This link takes you to a PDF detailing a study done by BFAMFAPhD. They took on the hard task of finding out where arts graduates land after completing their degree. This is a must for anyone who is interested in the survey projects previously done by groups like W.A.G.E.
