For this article, we decided that we wanted to interview kindergarteners on their perspectives of famous art. We ended up interviewing two kindergarteners about two pieces of famous art. We used two widely known art pieces by Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso. These two art pieces are “Starry Night” By Vincent Van Gogh, and “Guernica” by Pablo Picasso.  The two kindergarteners we interviewed go to Blaine, and we interviewed a girl and a boy. We asked them five questions on the photos and had them answer as best they could.  

First, we asked the kindergarteners about “Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh. 

Question: Do you know this famous piece of art? If so, what’s its name? Have you seen this before? 

Girl Answer: “I think I’ve seen it in a book.” 

Boy Answer: “No.”  

Question: What do you think is happening in this photo? 

Girl Answer: “I think it is the sky. No, there are shooting stars.” 

Boy Answer: “Those yellow things up in the air are stars.” 

Question: Do you think that you could paint this? 

Girl Answer: “I would not have enough time.” 

Boy Answer: “It might be hard.” 

Question: What do you think the author was trying to do/show/say? 

Girl Answer: “The city.” 

Boy Answer: “The sky.” 

Question: Why do you think the author chose to paint the stars like that? 

Girl Answer: “Because he was trying to make it pretty.” 

Boy Answer: “He was trying to make everybody see the stars.” 

Next, we interviewed the same students about “Guernica” by Pablo Picasso. 

Question: Do you know this famous piece of art? If so, what’s its name? Have you seen this before? 

Girl Answer: “No.” 

Boy Answer: “No.” 

Question: What do you think is happening in this photo? 

Girl Answer: “I think it is a farm.” 

Boy Answer: “There’s animals.” 

Question: Do you think that you could paint this? 

Girl Answer: “It might be hard making the tiny heads.” 

Boy Answer: “It might be hard.” 

Question: What do you think the author was trying to do/show/say? 

Girl Answer: “That the farm has animals.” 

Boy Answer: “That there are animals on the farm.” 

Question: Why do you think the author chose to make this painting abstract? 

Girl Answer: “I don’t know.” 

Boy Answer: “I don’t know.”
