This collection was created in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery's 2016 Learning to Look Summer Teacher Institute.

In this activity students will use the "Jumping In" artful thinking strategy to foster understanding of sensory language. The students will be prompted to visualize themselves within the frame as a means to become more deeply engaged with the artwork. The objective is to be able to notice details, think creatively, and use descriptive language in written composition.
