A couple of days after Christmas, we herded up a bunch of kids and took them to the museum. Last year it occurred to me to give the kids some notebooks and colored pencils so they could copy the art that they liked. We repeated the exercise this year. I'm really enamored with this project--the kids engage with the art, and the parents have something to discuss with them after leaving the museum. Win win.
Here are a few of their masterpieces along with the art that inspired them:
