The Art of Looking: National Gallery of Modern Art

 

This is a walk for children aged 12 to 16 years.

The National Gallery of Modern Art, established in 1954, houses a splendid collection of paintings some of which are 150yrs old! This is the best place to explore Indian contemporary art, to learn a few stories of the past and our culture. Yet paintings in a museum sometime baffle us. How do we make connections with a work of art that we can barely comprehend? Through a series of activities and games, the walk is designed to build in the young observers a set of skills central to ‘looking’ and to experience a visceral, sensory response to an artwork. By looking closely and exploring together as a group, the artwork becomes a site for play and learning new things.
