If you are taking a group of kids to an art museum, concert, opera or other cultural experience it’s a great idea to teach them how to view things critically. Here is a great activity for teaching kids to be good critics!
As you know I’m the art teacher for our homeschool co-op. Over this past school year we’ve studied Picasso, Van Gogh, and Seurat. We’ve got two more months to go and more to learn but I thought that it would be awesome to break up the year and take them…
Here’s my activity for teaching kids to be good critics!
We did this activity before our trip and I was so pleased when I heard the kids talking about what they loved about the paintings and what they didn’t. There was still some “that’s ugly” (even from me!) but for the most part we were all great critics!
Teaching kids to be good critics isn’t difficult or boring, with the right tools they can learn how to express their opinions intelligently!
