**ask your little ones what they see in this painting!** I am doing an 'art for youth' thing at my daughter's school. i will be presenting one artwork each month to 20 K5 ers giving info on it, asking kids questions etc (total of 20 minutes). what do YOU see in this painting, feel free to make comments as if you where 5-6 years old

  

Stuart Davis, America, 1894-1964
Blips and Ifs, oil on canvas, 71 1/8 x 53 1/8 in
Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth Texas

(so happens, my sister lives in Fort Worth) Hoping she can take pic of person in front of painting to show how large it is. I will be supplied with a poster of the artwork and background info to talk to class about, hoping for some ideas to make it more fun for 5-6 yr olds.

  • My not-quite-5 year old said "There's a yellow T-Rex that's thinking about climbing down those cursive letters to eat the "M" that my name starts with."

  • My almost 6 yr old sees words: especially the COMP (short for computer). And, she thinks the thing on the left is a lizard, not a dragon, like her baby sister does.
