ArtThink: Tools and Games

Presented by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, this wonderfully interactive site offers a glossary of art terms, illustrated by objects in the museum. There is also a “detail detective” game where students can use their powers of observation to find small details in paintings from the museum. Perhaps the most instructive part of the site is the section on art basics which discusses and illustrates basics of art such as line, shape, color, and texture.
