The printed guides ask them to respond by writing and drawing. -Inside the exhibit the docents will talk with young people and family members to encourage discussion about their observations. -Outside the exhibit the students may write a descriptive phrase of their own responding to on one of the artworks and/or write a poem or a rap in response.
