I have periodically shared links to lessons on using art as a language-learning activity, and have published some of my own. I thought it would be useful to start compiling them here, and to invite readers to contribute what I hope are a whole lot more.
I’m excluding music lessons from this list since I have several separate ones for them:
A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists For Sites Where ELL’s Can Create Art
The Best Music Websites For Learning English
The Best Online Sites For Creating Music
The Best Online Karaoke Sites For English Language Learners
Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Music Sites
The Best Places To Find Lyrics On The Web
The Best Sites For Ideas On Making Simple Musical Instruments

Here is a beginning Best Resources For Using Art As A Way To Teach & Learn English:
Using art in the classroom is from ELT-Cation.
Art Least is “A site that explores art & creativity in ELT.”
Chain Drawings is a nice lesson from The British Council.
Create to Communicate: Art Activities for the EFL Classroom is from the United States Department of State.
From my NY Times posts for ELLs: Students separate run-on sentences in this interactive about International Dance Day, and use it as a model for creating their own. In addition, they can view a variety of dance videos and write a compare/contrast essay.
