Online Art Games
What we are trying to accomplish with the art games is to get your students looking closely at great art, architecture and artifacts without feeling like that’s what they’re doing. Currently we have 7 types of art games: forgeries, puzzles, concentration, crosswords, matching, hangman and guess the art. Also included, just for fun, is Fine Art Speech Bubbles. And for geography fans there are currently two geography games.
