“I don’t see nothin’.” piped up Jeremy.
“Me neither” said several of the children, not showing any appreciation for the painting. A lot of the children looked very uninterested.
“There’s no people in it, just sky and dirt” said Joey. “Boy, I thought this field trip to the museum was going to be fun, looking at dinosaur bones and stuff not looking at these old paintings.”
“Children, the art museum can be fun if you just take the time use your imagination. Let’s think about when some of these were painted, the subject in the painting and who painted them and why they are considered art.”
Miss Cline could sense she was losing most of them so she decided to move on to some more expressive works, but she noticed Clara her most studious student staring intently at the painting.
“Clara, what do you see?”
“I see a garden, a beautiful garden, Miss Cline.” she said smiling.
“Really? How did you come up with that Clara?” asked Miss Cline.
“Look, there on the ground.” Clara said pointing to the painting. “I see seeds, and everyone knows if you plant a seed you get a harvest. That one there is a seed of love and that one is a seed of kindness. There’s a stream coming down from the mountains to water them. That’s what I see Miss Cline, a beautiful garden. Do you see it too?” Clara asked enthusiastically.
At first Miss Cline did not quite know what to say until she looked at the title of the painting, “The Beginning”. She nodded to Clara and said, “Yes, I do believe I see it too.”
