Google’s ‘Art Project’ is a collaboration with over 15 of the worlds most famous art galleries. It uses Google’s “Street View” technology to move through selected galleries and learn about the museum.
You can view featured work, find out about the artist, watch YouTube videos of further information and read about the artwork.
This really is an amazing resource that will be of obvious use to schools, in particular art and design departments. One of the most impressive features allows you to create your own collection by saving specific views of any of the works of art. You can also add comments and share your collection with other (eg: your art teacher)
