WHAT ART IMAGES ARE RECOMMENDED?
Higher level thinking is a basis for this curriculum by using historical and contemporary art images for discussion and writing. Keep in mind that web sites sometimes change the locations of images on their sites, or may eliminate them. Perhaps the easiest way to locate and view art images is to simply "google" the art image title and artist.
