Anthony Fontana’s Art 101: Intro to Art online class in Second Life has begun their summer semester. The first thing the class learned to do was learn to use Second Life using a number of tutorials now on the BGSU Second Life Wiki.

During the second week, students took a field trip to the Sistine Chapel re-creation on Vasar Island. Check out the pictures below! Each student was to find a composition that was an good example of the vocabulary the students were introduced to in class. Each student then communicated to the rest of the class how  they saw the term used in the image. The students are keeping blogs to document their explorations of art on the web and in Second Life using the BGSU blogging system (
