[email protected] Interact with Art
Interact with art in the WAG collection from the comfort of your home. With everything from historical to contemporary artwork, the WAG holds an extensive and rich collection for your endless inspiration! This week, we invite you to interact with a The Adoration of the Magi, a 16th century work attributed to the Dutch painter Jörg Stocker.
Look: This large panel painting features the biblical story of the three Wise Men or Magi who travelled from faraway lands to celebrate the birth of the Christ Child. Look carefully at the landscape in the far distance. Can you find a small town and a bridge? Can you trace the path the Wise Men followed to arrive at the wooden stall marked with a gold star?
Imagine: Take a close look at the fancy robes and hats worn by the Wise Men and describe what makes each costume special and unique. Notice each of the gifts they offer to the child. What do you think might be inside the three containers? If you would bring a gift for this occasion, what would it be?
Create: Paint a picture of an exciting trip you made in order to visit someone special in your life. Create a path marking your journey and use your imagination to describe what you wore and what you brought with you for that special someone.
