What can we learn from looking at Nancy Morin’s The Wedding of the Red Horse?

Let’s look

Take your time. Look carefully. Where do your eyes go first? Then where? Take in as many details as you can.

Let’s describe

What time of year is it?  What time of day is it?  Is the horse flying or jumping? How would you describe the mood the painting? What visual elements support your ideas?

Encourage students to ask questions. What visual elements in the artwork prompt the questions asked?

Let’s imagine

In The Wedding of the Red Horse who is the horse marrying?
