About Picturing America:

Picturing America is a K-12 teaching tool created by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The tool consists of 40 art-historic images of paintings, sculpture, drawings, decorative objects and architecture that represent several centuries of U.S. history. Used singly, chronologically or thematically, the images provide gateways to cross-curriculum learning in social studies, history, writing, literature, geography, civics, and other subjects.
