Looking At Pictures

Lucy Micklethwait has created a variety of art books designed to inspire conversations and instill in children an appreciation for fine art. These could be used in the classroom to introduce art lessons or as prompts for creative writing. Micklethwait’s books could also simply be made available for students to look at together for a type of “Where’s Waldo” experience. The artworks and the prompts provided on each page give students a great starting point to begin talking about the art.
