Use the ‘Talking About Art’ placemat as a stimulus when asking your students to talk about art. The attached lesson starter document explains how to use the placemat for a starter activity, where you divide your class into groups and give them time to discuss the sentence starters, and then you ask for feedback.
I have also provided a blank ‘Talking About Art’ worksheet should you want a written response.
A really useful starter that could be used with any artist or artwork.
