START WITH ART: Leda and the Swan

This takes us less than five minutes each morning and tends to be re-visited later in the day at the dinner table or during our evening reading sessions. 

Here's how to #STARTWITHART:

Step one: Take a look at the artwork below

Step two: Read the questions below the picture of the art to the students/children in your life

Step three: See how starting your day with art can ignite creativity and critical thinking! 

It's that easy!
