All About Art
http://library.thinkquest.org/J001159/index.htm
GRADE LEVEL: 3-5

CONTENT:
Kids developed this ThinkQuest Junior site for kids to learn about artists and their styles.

AESTHETICS:
The pages are functional with a minimum of graphics, bells, and whistles but are still appealing.

ORGANIZATION:
Navigation is easy with the left-side menu that appears on each page.

REVIEW:
A group of fourth-grade boys put together All About Art, which was a finalist in the ThinkQuest Junior contest. The site features information on a selection of artists from Chagall to Warhol and art styles from abstract to surrealism. The big attraction, though, is the Art by Kids section that includes the "masterpieces" done by the authors of the site. These works, done in the styles of famous artists, are sure to inspire budding artists everywhere. Users will also find games and an annotated list of links to other art sites on the Internet. This site is already a winner in this art lover's eyes.
