I brought along a few of our classified cards and gave each child one painting to find inside the Museum. They had a great time being art detectives. It must have been amazing to come face to face with artwork that they have become so familiar with over the last few months. I only took them to the galleries that had the Degas and Van Gogh paintings since I didn’t want to overwhelm them. We kept the experience simple, short, and sweet — it was under an hour! But as we walked through the museum they couldn’t help but recognize a few others and call out, “Wait, stop! I just saw ‘The Actor’ by Pablo Picasso!” and “Oh look, The Path Through the Irises by Claude Monet!” I’m a very happy teacher today!
