As part of the Art of Looking program, 6th-graders from Benjamin Franklin Elementary School explored how Horace Pippin created the illusion of 3D space in Giving Thanks (1942), then created their own room on iPads using digitized objects from the Barnes collection. Do you have what it takes to create unique spaces like Horace Pippin and Dr. Barnes? For more information about the Art of Looking and other K–12 programs at the Barnes Foundation, visit our website at http://www.barnesfoundation.org/education/k-12/
