(G1) A visit to the North Carolina Museum of Art 4/4

The artists use symbols to tell stories and send messages.
Student comment: " The dog can not get the swan, because the swan can fly away".

There are many ways to tell stories with pictures.
Discussing the details in the painting.

We learned that in depictions of Madonna and Child in paintings, the garments of Mary are always red, blue or white.

The significance of the colors red, and blue.
Learning about the direction of light in the painting. 

Looking at the Mona Lisa which was made out of 5184 spools of thread.

When seen with the aid of viewing spheres, Mona Lisa is looking at us.

This is the artist Devorah Sperber arranging the spools of thread.
