For the kids….

Gregory O’Brien writes great art books for young people. He says that when you are looking at paintings and other art you should take your time and even look at things you find a bit strange, because you might find out something new and you might even start to like what you find.

For the adults…

Read, look, think. Truly, sometimes a work of art just gives you nothing. Then, says the art writer Justin Paton, you can just walk away. But it is advisable to study the object or image hard, just in case you have missed the one thing that makes it understandable to you.
