Questions for Engagement
- What’s going on in this artwork? What do you see that makes you say that?
- What time of year do you think it is? Why?
- What do you think of when you think of winter? What experiences, feelings, colors, or activities are unique to winter?
- Look around your home and neighborhood, or use your imagination. What do you see or notice that is wintery?
- Can you find things to draw or photograph that make you think of winter?
