    Truly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder! This is a really fun post and I like the variations/interpretations of certain famous pieces. Truly, art can be really fun and though it’s hard to decipher the meaning behind it sometimes, at one point or another, the meaning will just come natural to most.

      I agree and the discussions that come from it make visiting art museums even more fun! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great post Natalie! I really enjoyed the tips you provided and asking the audience to not just move on past one piece of art and onto the next. Like Aileen said and you mentioned in your post, it can be difficult to determine the artist meaning or mood, but you provided some really good tips to engage in the painting!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      I think that artists enjoy you having your own ideas on meaning or mood, too, in addition to whatever they actually intended. So much of art is a feeling..and everyone has their own. Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow. Super fun post. I never know how to talk about art to my son. I use the penny words for sure! I need to up my game!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      LOL! Glad we could help with that! Enjoy the discussions. Kids see things differently! Thanks for stopping by.

      Thanks for stopping by! I find art museums to be even more fun with the kids. Their perspective is always interesting and different from my own! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Great post! I always find it interesting to talk about art with others because it’s all about your own interpretation!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Me, too! Kids always have a really different take on things! Love to hear their perspective.Thanks for stopping by!

    Lovely post! Such great suggestions to get kids involved in the art world so they’ll hopefully appreciate it as they get older too. Plus some of the suggestions are just so much fun- playing with food is such a great idea! 😀 Really like your notes on tolerance too, I’m not a huge fan of modern art but knowing the story behind the piece usually helps me to at least appreciate where the artist is coming from.
