First class!

The expression on the little kids face in the first photo is priceless! :-)

I enjoy the time I spend in galleries and enjoy the time twice as much when I'm allowed to use my camera. Having said that, I'd have gone in the opposite direction to the school group as far and as fast as I could.

Good on you for sticking around KB.

Oh, you curmudgeon. The kids reminded me of that Pete and Dud bit at the museum. "Have you seen the Ruebens? He does all the fat ladies with nothing on."

Desiree said...

I love this!

Awesome in the raw some.

As all my free time revolves around dogs, which means no museums, I really appreciate the vicarious art appreciation.

Kid looks bored.

Deborah Carr said...

The kids look like they are not sure what to do or where to look (love the wide-eyed look of shock on one girl).

altadenahiker said...

Biff? Is your name really Biff? That's so cool, I never expected to ever meet a Biff, although I have known a Chip.

Deborah, she's my favorite, too. Along with the boy tugging at her sleeve, in equal shock because he's staring at the big woman.

Those kids are great. I like all of them. Maybe when they grow up at least some of them will go to see art voluntarily.

I like the boys in the masks. They remind me of the guys who robbed the liquor store.

Ms M said...

I love these photos! Kids and art are often an "interesting" combination.

Kids and art are always a good meeting. The kids on the third photo looks very amazed looking the sculptures.

Death by museum. A fine American educational tradition. Luckily, it doesn't quite manage to kill every artistic/aesthetic impulse.

Rob said...

Now if there were a museum dedicated to small electronic devices, DVD's and interactive TV, the kids would be in seventh heaven. Maybe sixth.

Margaret said...

It's the lady in teal that gets me. You know she's badmouthing everything.

Man overheard in the Picasso wing at the LA County Museum of Art:

"So this is where all the crazy people are."

A picture of someone (P) who is taking a picture of a picture.

Nice!

Btw: The name is Rubens.

Banjo52 said...

Fun stuff. Kids are always entertaining, whatever else they might be.

Pat Tillett said...

All awesome, but that first one is a CLASSIC! Have yourself a great week!

Petrea Burchard said...

Actually I wasn't taking a picture, anonymos2. I was examining the Maier photo with a magnifying glass.

Trish said...

great shots K!

That shot of that "sketchy" lady in teal---I took a class this weekend where I used not only my bifocals but also a magnifying glass to see minute details and still struggled. Realized the class must have been designed for younger folk!

P---this "kid" visited the Villa when I was a handful of years older than those pictured and now I willingly wander the halls of museums and get excited with announcements of Monet exhibits

I think they could do with a few fig leaves.

Tash said...

You could put that 1st one in a show. Super captures!

Ooooh, take me back. Or on second thought...
