Gulbenkian - Learning about art

 

The picture they are learning about (at least those who are concentrating on the teacher!) is 'Peacock and Cock Fighting', oil on canvas painting by Paul de Vos (159? - 1678), a Flemish painter, a friend and collaborator of Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony Van Dyck. 

A wonderful environment for learning about art.

Very agreeable Tom, get 'em started young and with any luck they'll be interested for the rest of their lives
Tom Wilson: Perhaps this lot are just a little too young - attention seems to wander smile
They are mostly captivated by what they are being told.
Tom Wilson: Yes, indeed - one or two a little disengaged, but otherwise they're listening.

Indeed, and it would have been nice to attend that class, even at my age smile
Tom Wilson: We'd probably all enjoy it, Louis smile

Lucky chidren
Tom Wilson: They certainly are!
One of my joys is to see schoolchildren being taken to galleries and having paintings explained to them by knowledgeable leaders. It is good to be engaged with art from a young age.
Tom Wilson: I agree, Chad - I never had that good fortune.
This shot brings me much happiness.
Tom Wilson: And I'm happy to convey happiness, Mary smile A lovely scene, isn't it?
One young lady is more interested in the elderly gentleman with the camera.
Tom Wilson: Actually, I think she's looking at the teacher smile

Tom Wilson: Thanks, Peter.

I love those scenes and art lessons. I visited musea with my students, too, and they sat on the floor like these children. The guides are often very talented to speak to the youngsters.
Tom Wilson: A very fine activity for the kids.
The blue hats are so cute...
Tom Wilson: They are, aren't they?
