I volunteer to teach art to classes k-3rd and we have enjoyed using your site on our promethiun or smart boards. The children love doing the puzzles and I plan to use VanGogh prints to teach this week. I can illustrate his work with the flip of a button! Wonderful! Thank you so much!

I am thrilled to have found this site. What a blessing. I am helping my daughter with home schooling and have taken on art history as my once a week contribution to my 13 year old grandson's education. Thank you beyond words.
