Invention : Art Game

For this, first visit a postcard shop or art gallery to acquire a varied selection of post cards of paintings - naturalistic, surrealist, even abstract.

Deal them out to the players, suggesting that they write about what they see, what they think is happening.

Ask them to pay close attention to how the people, animals, objects, in the paintings feel, why they are acting as they did, and to describe the landscape in terms of what the images show and suggest, rather than just what they represent.

It is worth noting that this game has been used successfully with adults visiting exhibitions both of visual and tactile art - using the art works themselves instead of postcards.
