Pictures can also be used to develop awareness of different kinds of art, from different cultures. Put your learners into pairs or small groups. Ask them to discuss the painting: - what does it show? - where might you find a painting like this? - even if you don't know the answers to the above questions, what response do you have to the picture (the colours, the composition etc)? - do you like the picture? - would you like to have it on your wall, or as a calendar, or as a greetings card (etc)? - if you don't like it very much, what kinds of paintings do you prefer?
