Museum Network: Material World

Explore the world of materials used to make works of art. In the gallery you’ll find examples of art made from wood, clay, stone, paint, metal, and even animal. This is an extensive site with lots of examples of all kinds of art. With each material you’ll find art works made from that material, an in-depth description of the work of art, and teachers’ information that includes activities that pertain to just that piece of art. In addition, each material has a section with games, where the material can be found, what types there are, the processes used to produce the works of art, and what museums need to do to preserve that particular material. The teachers’ section includes activities that use that particular material.
