Artsology: Art Games, ArtsEd Resources, and much more!

One of our original ideas in starting Artsology nearly 15 years ago was to create arts games for kids, hoping to engage them with fun games as a way to introduce them to art history ... and it seems to be working! We've got 83 arts games spread out over 6 pages, and 90 arts investigations which can be used as ArtsEd resources for the classroom, homeschooling, or just for fun and interest! Also, make sure to check out our exclusive series, The Arts Adventurer! Below are a highlighted selection of games, features, and arts adventures:
