Catch of the Day - Picturing America - 11/3/2010

Picturing America makes the nation's artistic heritage – paintings, sculpture, architecture, crafts, and photography – accessible to everyone.


Picturing America strives to give visitors the opportunity to learn about America's history and culture in a new, engaging way. The program uses art as a stimulus for  the study of the cultural, political, and historical strands of America's foundation.


Using high-quality reproductions of significant American art together with the Teachers Resource Book and the website, Picturing America can help students understand the human aspects of American history.

The benefits of Picturing America Include ...

  • A free resource that provides educators with an engaging way to teach American history, culture, and other subjects through the use of art
  • Educational entities and public libraries in the US may receive up to 40 high-quality, laminated reproductions
  • An illustrated Teachers Resource Book with activities organized by elementary, middle and high school levels
  • Access to the Picturing America site which contains additional information and resources, including innovative lesson plans


Picturing America is a program of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
