The study and practice of the arts opens the way to the world of sensitivity, subjectivity and creativity. In order for your students to learn to create, interpret and appreciate works and to develop plastic arts skills through the integration of technologies, several digital resources are available.

Whether you want to get your students to document, create or disseminate, digital resources can support your visual arts educational practices. Through virtual galleries, online exhibitions and interactive activities, you will be able to broaden the horizons of your students and develop their artistic curiosity.

Here is a selection of 7 resources for teaching visual arts in preschool, elementary and secondary:

1- The Great Painters - Virtual Museum P2 - P3 - S1 - S2

Thanks to the volunteer directors of this evolving virtual museum, it is possible to consult the detailed biographies of the great masters of Western painting, from Botticelli to Monet, and to view their works in large format. The site also presents the main movements of painting since the Renaissance. 

2- Monet P2 - P3 - S1 - S2

This fantastic online exhibition allows you to discover Monet's work through a virtual gallery, but above all through an absolutely delicious online trip! If you have a webcam, you can use it during this trip. Either way, this interactive experience is worth the trip… Monet as you've never seen him! 

3- Art while having fun P1 - P2 - P3 - S1 

Six sections offer different simple activities for children: portrait, landscape, still life, genre scene, riddle and a short history of painting. Throughout these sections, children learn, mainly through guided observation, and can test their new knowledge about painting. 

4- Game: The Gallery of Mysteries P2 - P3

Introduce students to contemporary Quebec art, develop their sense of observation, get them to express the emotions felt in front of the photos, to discuss and establish links between the works exhibited in the Gallery and with other types of 'images, this is what this interactive adventure, offered free of charge, in French and in English, can be carried out online or on tablet. 

5- National service of the RÉCIT in the field of the arts Pr - P1 - P2 - P3 - S1 - S2

This recently updated site presents the RÉCIT, whose mandate is specifically related to the arts. It contains many resources that promote the development of arts skills in students through the integration of technologies. A strong team provides support and support to teachers in this area. 

6- ÉducArt - Montreal Museum of Fine Arts S1 - S2

This digital platform, free and bilingual, intended mainly for secondary school teachers in Quebec, will allow them to help their students to deepen the content of several disciplines of the Quebec school training program, by relying on the 350 works of the encyclopedic collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. 

7- When mathematical genius meets artistic genius ... Pr - P1 - P2 - P3 - S1 - S2

Are there any links between mathematics and the visual arts? These two seemingly opposed disciplines have several extremely interesting points in common that you can discover in this joint dossier by Carrefour education and École branchée.
