Lessons from Lucy: Seeing Paintings
Thursday was Toddler Time at The Morris Museum.
The children talked about landscapes and looked at paintings of nature and then went to the activities room to create their own art. During these times, Lucy has painted a still-life of found objects, a texture rubbing, a Medusa snake (after Ida Kohlmeyer's Medusa chair) and, this week, a pet rock -- rocks are in nature, you know.
She loves the quiet of the museum and seeing the pictures. Since before she was two, she and I have had museum days.
Seeing paintings with Lucy makes a difference in seeing paintings.
