Are you into art? Do you like to read some great poetry? Well I'm a seventh grader that likes both and I'll tell you about a great site to use if you like them too. It doesn't really matter what you prefer because this site has many different art links to choose from. The links range from paintings to on-line poetry to the art of tattoos (wen shen). This site has great graphics on every page. "China the Beautiful" also gives information about the kinds of art posted on the site. I would definitely recommend this site if you like good art!
Have you ever seen a garden of glass? How about a bridge of glass? There are amazing pictures and stories about these things on this site. Dale Chihuly is a glass artist who has exhibits in over 200 museums across the United States and throughout the world. He has created everything from plain glass bulbs to flowers in a Venetian Art Deco style. Currently, his exhibit, Garden of Glass, is at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago. This exhibit has gotten glowing reviews. Later in 2002, another work, A Bridge of Glass, will be on display in Tacoma,Washington. This site will show you glass elevated to a fine art. If you can't travel to these cities, visit this site to see the amazing work of a truly gifted artist. (This site was submitted as part of the "Talking Walls" unit.)
Biography, picture,sounds,and even animation! All about one famous man named Walt Disney.
Who is the person that you most look up to? Probably some movie star or some cute singer? I bet you don't think Oprah Winfrey is cool at all. I'm guessing that the only thing you know about her is that she hosts a boring talk show. I don't blame you for thinking that. I used to until I found out more about her mixed up life as a star. I now look up to Oprah Winfrey because she dedicates herself to others. Oprah donates a lot of her paycheck to others. Her last priority is to think about herself. If you are interested in learning more about Oprah Winfrey, visit Oprah.com!
