Google Art Project

Art Finder

SECOND: You will have fifteen minutes to complete this activity and leave a comment.

Go to The Best Examples Of “Unusual” Art.

Are all of the examples on that list “art?” If so, why. Are there any examples you do not consider art? If so, why not?

THIRD: Only do this activity if you complete the first two. It is extra credit.

Go to The Best Sites For Learning About Famous Art Thefts. Then answer this question: why would people buy a stolen piece of art that they could never show to anyone else?

FREE TIME: If you complete all three activities, please just explore The Artist’s Toolkit.

Emotional Intelligence “Tests”

Take at least three of these Emotional Intelligence tests (if we have time, take more):

What’s Your EQ?


EQ Test

How Emotionally Intelligent Are You?

Greater Good Test

What did they say about you? Were there any differences between the three results? Do you agree with their conclusions? Why or why not? What do the results say about how emotions can help and hurt your search for knowledge?
