Description of how the website can be used with the students::
Using contemporary sources this is a visual source-based exercise ideal for use with a digital projector in the classroom. Group-work questions and guidance are included.
It can support links between the teaching of art and history.
The site would be particularly appropriate for students in rural communities but might require some additional information about farming methods for city children.
A useful but slightly limited site easily accessible to art teachers and students as a starting point for further study through other websites or projects.
