Who ARTed: Weekly Art History for All Ages

Arts Madness 2024

I am once again posting daily mini-episodes ahead of my annual Arts Madness Tournament. I planned this year's tournament to make it valuable as a classroom resource/activity. 60 of the artists/artworks in this year's tournament are from the list of required works for AP Art History courses in the US. The other 4 are wildcard artists chosen from my most popular episodes. 

Beginning the week of February 26, listeners will be able to vote for their favorite artists in a series of head-to-head matchups. Every week half the artists will be eliminated and over 6 weeks, we will narrow the field from 64 down to just 1 ultimate artist/artwork. To make it a little more fun, I will be giving away some Amazon gift cards throughout the tournament. 

Here are some of the ways you can win:

 I'll be using my ad money this month to buy gift cards, so the more you listen the more I can give away this spring.

Learn about media.

Season 1 covered the elements and principles. Season 2 covered different movements. For season 3, Art Smart is focusing on media. In each episode, you'll hear a short story to get a historical perspective, then I talked to the makers of some of my favorite materials like Ticonderoga pencils, Amaco clays and Prang watercolors to find out how the medium is made and how to make the most of it in our studio.
