Museum’s newest tool “Thinking about Pictures” (TAP) offers images of artworks in the current exhibition “Inspirations: Art for Storytelling.” Choose an image & then challenge yourself to type in your observations & interpretations. Return often to respond to other images. This can be an intergenerational activity. If a young person cannot yet type in responses, an older child or adult can serve as the scribe. Start exploring TAP here.
