So which network has the best Wi-Fi options? It’s time to look and get planning your next adventure, whether that’s from your couch or on the road.

Google Art

Learn about art for free with the Google Art Project. There are other courses that talk about useful things you can do with Google – by finding a flight to navigating with maps – but Google also offers many opportunities to learn something just for the sake of learning. One of them is the Google Art Project, a showcase of works of art from around the world. It is part of Google Arts & Culture, a division of the company dedicated to providing free educational resources related to art, history and culture online. Google Art Project is a beautiful website, with over 40,000 images of paintings, sculptures, street art and more. Many works of art also include detailed explanations and general information, so you can really learn a lot with a simple tour!

Look at the paintings closely – really, really very closely

All images in Google Art Project are high resolution, which means they are detailed enough to view in large size. However, some of the paintings are really very high resolution, so you can zoom in and see details that you never could see otherwise – even individual touches! There are so many wonderful creations, not just paintings but sculptures and even inflatables!

Take a virtual tour of a museum

Couldn’t you travel this summer? You can tour museums around the world with the Google Art Project. Click the “Collections” button at the top of any page to see a list of the museums and galleries that Google has art from. This can be a great way to explore an art form that interests you, such as street art or Japanese art. You can even take a walk to some museums: the Google Art Project offers a Museum View (similar to Street View Maps) from thousands of museums. You can navigate to these galleries virtually and click on the works you see to get more views.  You can see a list of the museums offered by Museum View by going to the Virtual Tours section of the homepage and clicking View All.

Find a new favourite artist

While the Google Art Project has works by artists you may have learned about in school — Van Gogh, Picasso, da Vinci — it also contains thousands of works by artists you’ve probably never heard of. Browse museums or user galleries to find a work you like, then click the artist name to see more of his work. You can also find interesting artists appearing on the Google Art Project homepage, which rotates through many works. Once you find an artist you like, you can view his work at any time using the search tool.

Create a virtual collection of your favourite art

You can save any artwork for later by clicking the heart button at the top of the page. You can then sort your saved works into a gallery by clicking the menu button in the upper left corner of the page and then selecting Favorites. This can be useful for creating art lists that will be used in school or in a project – or just for art you like! Once you save an art gallery, you can share the link with others.

“Art offers the majority of medical students something beyond their personal and perhaps cultural educational experience and allows them to learn strategies for observation in the clinical examination room,”

explains Steven Russell, an associate professor of general medicine and paediatrics. and developed the program. The proposal for this course, which according to its inspirer so far has not been analogous worldwide, was immediately accepted by the rector of the university. This is because the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the urgent need to shield medical students with data that will enable them to tackle racial prejudice, which affects medical diagnoses and burdens the health system.
