Smart Board

There are five art-based Smart board programs that you can download and use in your classroom. You will need Smart Notebook software to run the programs. The programs may take a few minutes to download. The programs feature artwork from Museum London’s collections and have fun activities that teach the elements and principles of design for various grades. The programs are divided into “primary”, “junior” and “intermediate” sections, with each section separated by a blank slide. While the slides are generally self-explanatory, there are instructions on the blue tabs which can be pulled out.
