The Art of Storytelling - Hear a Story, Tell a Story

The Art of Storytelling is a website hosted by the Delaware Museum of Art. On The Art of Storytelling visitors can listen to stories and read stories based on works of art. Visitors can also create their own stories. To create a story visitors select a work of art then type a story or record an audio through their computers' microphones. Visitors can also build stories after creating their own simple works of art using drag-and-drop menus. Either way that they're made, stories can be shared on the Art of Storytelling website.

Thanks to Kristen Swanson for sharing this excellent resource.

Applications for Education
The Art of Storytelling could be a good resource for art teachers and writing teachers. Students can record critiques of art works on the site. Students can also use the site as inspiration for creating short stories.
