UIL Art History Competition
Are there any Texas teachers here familiar with the Art test for elementary/junior high? I've ended up having to coach art for my students this year, and I what I know about art would fill... hmmmm... a thimble, perhaps? I have no idea where to even begin to look for information other than to just start "googling" the information I can find on the art pieces and the artists.

Are there any resources out there that I can get hold of for free, fast, to do some coaching??

don't worry
I spent 8 years in art school (specialized high school and uni.), and I'm still looking stuff up. There is so much good stuff on the net, museum websites are a great place to start (most have ed. games and kid pages), but as I'm in Canada, I suggest you look at ones in your area. The Smithonean and Moma sites are great to.

But here's my real suggestion, get a fat art-history survey style book from the library, and go period by period depending on whats covered on the test. Don't bother reading the whole chapters, but use it as a googling guide. You'll start to see how one period leads into another, and that they cycle between "classicism" (staunchy intellectual) and "romantic" (nature loving and emotional), or just find games and activities for specific periods.
