This tour looks at how artists use body and facial expression and hand gestures to convey meaning in art.

Ask students to put hands in expressive greetings/ gesture of fear, surprise, deep thought, etc.  Repeat with face.

Discuss how we read meaning in expression and gesture with our friends just as we can in art.
