The Art of Seeing Art

The Art of Seeing Art℠ is a process for looking carefully and exploring a work of art on a deeper level. Developed by the Toledo Museum of Art, the Art of Seeing Art℠ is a series of five steps: LookSeeDescribeAnalyze, and Interpret, which you can use when looking at any work of art in the Museum’s collection.

Knowing the language of art—the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design—can help make meaning of what you see.
