Saving Images

Use the links toward the bottom to find quality information and pictures. Don't just copy pictures off of Google Images! Actually go to the websites.


Save the images to your teacher's "teacher folder". Do not just save them to the computer.


Don't see the "teacher folder"? Right click on the red N on the bottom right of your screen. Choose Novell Login at the top. Enter North as the username with no password. Click Ok.

Works Cited Page

You MUST cite your sources in proper MLA format. You will print a Works Cited page at the end of your project to turn in to your teacher.


Easybib.com is an easy way to develop a Works Cited Page.

  • Artist's Name
  • Painting Title
  • Year

  • Medium (this means the tools or techniques used in the painting)


Citing Information:

Use the "Website" bar on the main easybib.com page.
