Students will think about an artwork in relation to their own life. Students receive a prompt to help them find a work of art to connect with, and then share together why that work of art spoke to them.
Print out the below prompts on slips of paper:
- Find a work of art that has something to say about grief or loss.
- Find a work of art that embodies pure joy.
- Find an image of a person with whom you would like to have a conversation.
- Find an image of a person with whom you would find it difficult to empathize.
- Find a work of art that your grandmother would like or would have liked to have in her living room.
- Find a work of art that reminds you of your childhood.
Students choose one prompt and walk through the gallery to find a work of art that answers the prompt for them. Then, do a “gallery walk,” having students point out their chosen artwork and share with the group why they chose it.
