 Judy Decker's Art Education Resources
This site was created by Judy Decker, an art teacher. It should be a great resource for other art teachers who are looking for interesting content on the internet. Under "lesson plans" there are several ideas for incorporating african art into the classroom, and also samples of student work (which is great!). There is also a valuable collection of African art links. Browse around the site, there is a lot more there relating to Africa than you might notice at first.
