Suggestions for talking about art with your child (with one or more pieces of art):

“Can you find a square?”                                      

“I see a rectangle.  Can you see another?”

“Let’s count the shapes.”

“This painting has more rectangles than this one.”

“Which paintings have red? black? orange?”

“I see the rectangles in this painting are touching…these rectangles are not touching each other.”
