I am doing a report about Les Arts in the USA and in Alsace, France. Like music, painting, sculptures etc. Do you guys know of any website with information about the common types of paintings in Alsace or music played??
Try some of the following links for each topic:

Do you have a French class where you are doing this project? I don't know how much you know about L'Alsace and la Lorraine but they are in the North East of France and for a number of years France and Germany fought over the two provinces. L'Alsace is principally an agricultural region and la Lorraine, with some of the richest iron mines in Europe, is important from an industrial perspective.
Were you interested in ancient history, the Middle Ages, Modern, etc.?
For me, the architecture was fascinating, as we traipsed around many cathedrals and feudal castles. There is where you will find wonderful art treasures. From one of the Tourism sites, here is a nice U-Tube presentation on the Treasures of Alsace:
Here are some more videos as well, so you might get a "feeling" for Alsace:
Let me find a site for the Unterlinden Museum in Colmar. Try some of the links here for information:
Here is a site for the artist Hansi:
Here is a site for Joseph Dufour, a manufacturer of painted wallpaper and fabrice:
(Not to worry; I picked English sites for you!)
