Metropolitan Museum of Art - Kids - cool site where you can explore and learn about different art genres and get "inside" the picture and the artist. Lots of interactivity, just what you'd expect from one of the premier art museums in the world. The perfect place to start for your budding Picasso.
Mosaic Maker - " Make a mosaic from a photoset, favorites, tags, or individual digital photographs or images. It's a whole world of creative photo possibilities -- themes, colors, shapes. So, get that digital camera out and shoot some photos!" Brilliant website that allows users to go mad with digital images.
Art Attack - website from the ITV children's art show with lots of projects to get the creative juices flowing.
SMART - website from CBBC art show. Again lots of makes and games.

MrPicassoHead.com - You've heard of Mr. Potato Head, now create a Picasso Head, a work of art worthy of the man himself. Great fun.
Doink.com - great free site that allows users to create and share their animations.
