An accompaniment to the special exhibition entitled Over the Line: The Art and Life of Jacob Lawrence, the Over the Line Web site features the paintings of Jacob Lawrence, along with photographs and a brief synopsis of his life. The site is divided into three sections -- Beginnings, Young Artist, and Over the Line -- and covers the period between 1917 (the year of his birth) to 2000 (the year of his death). The site also contains suggested classroom activities, discussion questions, teaching strategies, and recommended books in the areas of social studies, language arts, math, science, and visual arts. It also includes a collection of paintings by secondary students in the Washington, DC area. Users can choose to view the exhibit in Flash (which requires a Flash 4.0 plug-in) or HTML (which has been optimized for low bandwidth computers). A part of the Phillips Collection located in Washington, DC, this is an excellent online exhibit that delves into the life of painter and educator Jacob Lawrence.
