Art That Tells a Story

Questions for Discussion

  • How can looking closely at an object help you understand the world of the person who created it?
  • What do you need to know about each object to understand the story it embodies?
  • How or what story do these art objects tell about the people/culture? Or how/when do (everyday) objects become art?
  • What do the materials used to make the objects tell you about the climate where the artists live and what resources were available to them?
