The purpose of this CD-ROM is to provide children with an introduction to the Memorial Art Gallery as well as teach them how to look at art. The project will consist of two parts: a tour of the gallery and a section where children will be taught how to understand art. The presentation may be used in a kiosk, in a classroom as a teaching aid, or in a media center. The target audience will be kindergarten through sixth-grade children. The final product may be distributed to local schools and can also be used as a template by other galleries and museums. The interface will be adequately designed with the intended audience in mind so that children in the aforementioned age group will be able to easily interact with it. The possibility that this product may be used either by an individual or in a classroom setting where a number of people may be using it simultaneously will also be addressed.
