Give students a printout of a work of art to take home and “live with”—they should hang it up in a place where they will see it every day.
What did you fall in love with? What bothered you? What do you still wonder about? What did your family think of the work when you first brought it home, and what do they think of it now? These questions could be the basis for a nonfiction writing prompt, a class discussion, or a research project.
Inspired by an activity from William Crow at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
