To be school ready in the Arts, children must be able to look at artwork and talk about what they see. What does talking about art mean? It means describing the colors, lines, patterns, shapes or textures in the artwork. It also involves identifying the subject of the artwork - Is it a person(portrait), a scene (landscape), or an abstract (imaginary)? And it means talking about how the art makes them feel.
