- The students are given the opportunity to practice their close observational skills by focusing on the hats and clothing worn by figures in an artwork. This leads into a discussion about where the people are, what they are doing and how they might be feeling - all based on what the students see. Students are kept engaged by gallery activities with attention to the shapes and colors in the art.
