goop on kids and art

Yes, I subscribe to Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle magazine. Say what you will about her; she's got excellent taste and the connections and means to implement it. The latest Goop installment includes an item that's right up my alley: taking kids to art museums. I love the concrete suggestions for how to begin a conversation about art—and really, this list is useful for any thinking person, any age. I would add one idea: Bring art supplies to museums. My father always had us "copy" what we saw, and it's a great way to get kids to engage with art. (Check out Goop's recommendations for current museum shows and kids' books about art as well.)
