What is Artsy?

Artsy’s mission is to make all the world’s art accessible
to anyone with an Internet connection. We are a 

freely-accessible online platform for discovering,
learning about, and collecting art. Our growing
collection comprises 180,000+ artworks by 25,000+
artists from over 2,000 leading galleries and museums.
Powered by The Art Genome Project—a search
technology enabling connections between artists and
artworks and providing thousands of categories to
explore—Artsy hopes to foster new generations of art
lovers, museum-goers, and collectors.

Artsy & The New York City Department of Education

In October 2013, Artsy partnered with the New York City
Department of Education’s Digital Ready initiative—an
intensive professional development and technology expansion
program designed to help participating NYC public high
schools use technology and student-centered learning to
improve their students’ readiness for college and careers.

This guide, Teaching Art with Artsy, is one outgrowth of our
partnership, and we are pleased to make it publiclyaccessible. Teaching Art with Artsy directly illustrates how
Artsy can be used in conjunction with the NYC DOE’s
Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Visual Arts' 12th
Grade Benchmarks. For each type of Blueprint lesson we
have suggested specific categories or works on Artsy to use as
examples and/or to help structure the conversation about
art. Just click on any links (underlined in blue) to be taken
to their respective pages on Artsy.
