The Rembrandt Teaching Project is designed to use the works of Rembrandt in an interdisciplinary, inquiry-based, hands-on teaching approach promoting multiple literacies. Targeted at teachers of the Upper Elementary, Junior High School, and High School grades, the project uses art history to teach and enhance instruction in core content areas such as language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. It also draws upon strategies and techniques advanced in a discipline-based art education approach. This site contains biographical information about Rembrandt, lesson plans, activties, links, and resources. The Rembrandt Teaching Project supports the efforts of any teacher interested in broadening the base of traditional teaching using the visual arts as the catalyst.
