This week’s Featured Online Resource is the website Smarthistory (http://smarthistory.khanacademy.org/). Smarthistory began in 2005 as a place for learners to get more information about art history and for experts in the field to share information through informal videos about different art pieces. Users can search by time period (prehistoric to present), by style (Surrealism, Pop Art, etc.), and by artist (Goya, da Vinci, etc.).
The site also has a great article for those who are just learning about art history (http://smarthistory.khanacademy.org/for-the-beginner.html). The site also includes information on non-Western art including art from China, India, the Islamic World, and Africa.
