  1. What do you notice in this artwork?
  2. What do you think is happening in this artwork? What do you see that makes you think that?
  3. Why do you think the artist made this artwork?
  4. What message or ideas do you think the artist is trying to suggest? What do you see that makes you think that?
  5. Do you like this artwork? Why or why not?
  6. What would you like to ask the artist about this work if you could?
