Lessons in Art

Back to the Kröller Müller Museum.
The museum has, after the van Gogh museum, the most paintings of Vincent van Gogh in the collection. It also has a fantastic sculpture garden.
During my visits to this museum, I noticed that there are always groups of children walking around in the museum. The museum therefore has special teaching programs for schools. Below you can read how these courses are offered.

The teaching packages “Philosophize with paintings” and “Philosophize with sculptures” guarantee an inspiring and unforgettable museum visit for children from groups 5 to 8. (8-12 years) By looking together and philosophising, they discover more about works of art, but also about each other. Because everyone looks different and has different associations.

Are you sad from a sombre painting? Should an artist depict someone as beautiful or as real as possible? Philosophising with paintings connects 12 top pieces from the collection to stimulating philosophical themes. The children discover what makes the sunflowers of Vincent van Gogh so special, why Piet Mondrian transforms the sea into crosses and stripes, and much more. Director Lisette Pelsers philosophises in the worksheets and provides an extra storey layer!
Artists: Georges Seurat, James Ensor, Vincent van Gogh, Piet Claesz, Isaac Israels, Fernand Léger, Piet Mondrian, Kurt Schwitters, Constantin Brancusi and Pablo Picasso.

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
