One of my favorite ways to reinforce understanding of art concepts is through quiz games. In an earlier post I shared how to create your own art quizzes using MyStudiyo. Since then, I found another great visual quiz maker called PhotoPeach. This free online tool allows you to upload photos to create a slide show with captions and music. The quiz feature is enabled once your photos have been uploaded. I created the quiz below as a large group activity to help my students determine the differences between Realistic, Abstract Representational, and Abstract Non-objective art styles.

Want to try creating your own quiz? Start by registering for a free account with PhotoPeach. Next, upload your pictures and arrange them in your preferred order. You will then be prompted to give your slide show a title and choose a musical accompaniment. You can turn your slide show into a quiz by clicking the edit button and then selecting “edit caption and photos”. Choose a quiz question for any or all of your photos. The image below illustrates your options.
