Feeding Children on Great Art

“Let children feed on the good, the excellent, the great! Don’t get in their way with little lectures, facts, and guided tours! Lift a preschool child onto your lap, and look together at a full-page color reproduction of some great painting, drawing, or etching. Enjoy it, talk and notice together the details the child points to. Let the child look, enjoy with you; let him respond.”

–Susan Schaeffer Macaulay, For the Children’s Sake
