Gill Blower's Art Links - and others
GENERAL LINKS"Life! Help" section is particularly useful. We also have a fun kid's website - www.kids.inmatlock.com French and even Chinese!
ART WEBSITES - mainly for CHILDREN
You must rescue people from famous art portraits who have become stranded in the present day after our hero brought them here in a time-machine. You must search for clues in each painting so discover how to return these people to their own time. Investigate a variety of aspects about the painting - from the painting medium used to the history of the period and use the information to program a time machine control panel (this appears at the bottom of your screen during the game).
Lots of other activities and info are also provided on this site (owned by art materials manufacturer Sanford).
Other aspects of the site include matching 12 famous historical portraits with their names or discovering works by artists such as Piero della Francesca, Marsden Hartley, and Dorothea Lange. Fascinating and detailed information about the artists, the era, the history, the techniques used to create the work, and more. Learn by comparing artistic works.
Slow to load, but worth the wait.
