Parents and educators may be surprised by how interested a child will be with the art that’s showcased in a museum. Even if the section of classical art may not be that interesting a child may think the modern art is amazing. It’s important to adopt an attitude of exposure while not force feeding information that’s not interesting to a child. Becoming irritated if a kid is not impressed by art that is considered to be a masterpiece like the Mona Lisa is counterproductive. True appreciation comes in time and the only way to foster appreciation is through exposure. Ask children questions about the artwork, what colors they see or questions about the objects or people in the picture. Going to the museum is a fantastic way to create a dialog about art.
