For your Artist Research Project for Ms. Bhamra's Art Class, see some helpful links below:

  1. Oxford Art Online- Provides info about various artists. You can access this through the LAUSD Digital Library.
  2. SmartHistory- This site is the official provider of art history for khanacademy.org, and they support the AP art history curriculum. It is organized by the different art periods so it will help you understand the art your artist made and analyze it better. They also have short videos to help you understand the art and time period. This is a great site to help you understand your artist’s cultural and political approach, as well as their art style.
  3. WikiArt- This is a great resource for art. You can search for various artists or browse by genre. When you get to a particular artist, you can see a lot of their artwork, a short bio and a link to the Wikipedia article about their life and work. (Yes, it’s okay to use Wikipedia!)

    • CalEnviroScreen Version 4.0- Displays neighborhood pollution by census tract. 
    • Los Angeles GeoHub- The GeoHub is the City's public platform for exploring, visualizing, and downloading location-based Open Data. You can also analyze and combine Open Data layers using maps, as well as develop new web and mobile applications. Can search for air pollution and walkability index scores.
    • Chasing Carbon Zero- 50 minute PBS Documentary published in 2023. The U.S. recently set an ambitious climate change goal: net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. And to achieve that, slash emissions in half by 2030. Is it possible? And what kind of technology would it take? Meet scientists and engineers who are convinced we can achieve carbon zero in time to avoid the biggest impacts of climate change. Only the trailer is available on YouTube, but accessible in Schoology → App DropDown → Clever → Proquest eLibrary → PBS → search “Chasing Carbon Zero” 
    • Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority 2023 Homelessness Census- This count of people experiencing homelessness for LA County is by service provider area (SPA), not census tract, but students are encountering a lot of people who may be experiencing homelessness on their commute, LAHSA is a good place to get data to support the observation.
