Delaware Valley Council Meeting

Portfolio Review Luncheon


What is Art Goes to School? A non profit organization that began 50 years ago. West Chester AGTS belongs to the Delaware Valley AGTS, which includes over 50 other school districts. The organization provides prints to share with the schools to encourage art appreciation and abstract thought as it relates to history, math, foreign languages, literature and music.

A few great questions:
1. What did you notice first about this picture? 2. What is the most important color? 3. How is line (shape or pattern) important? 4. How are light & dark used in the picture? 5. How does the artist create dimension? 6. What mood does the picture create for you? 7. What do you think the artist is trying to say with this artwork? Do you appreciate this artwork more or less after discussing it? If you were to title this - what would the title be?
