Altered Books and Art

Disclaimer: Most books removed from TUSD classrooms and libraries are not available for altering. Those books, referred to as "discarded", are not actually thrown away. Instead they are recycled to other schools and districts. However, school libraries and classrooms sometimes have books that are either too badly damaged or too out-of-date to serve anyone's needs. Consult your school librarian about acquiring damaged books to alter. Other sources for suitable books for altering are thrift stores, yard sales, and sometimes the family bookshelves.

Art Museums for Kids

  • Artissimo - The children's page for the Cybermuse (National Gallery of Canada).
  • Decoding art - Cybermuse (National Gallery of Canada).
  • Metropolitan Museum of Art - For Kids
  • The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) - Founded in 1929 as an educational institution, the Museum of Modern Art seeks to create a dialogue between the established and the experimental, the past and the present, in an environment that is responsive to the issues of modern and contemporary art, while being accessible to a public that ranges from scholars to young children. The recently completed building project represents MoMA’s most extensive redefinition since its founding seventy-five years ago. Recently, the Department of Education, with MoMA's Digital Media department, has also developed a pair of innovative Web sites designed for young children and teenagers.
  • National Gallery of Art for Kids - Explore stories in art, take a post card tour of one of the galleries, get directions for art activities and projects, and more.
  • Tate Kids from Tate Gallery
