Schoolchildren and Monet

Happened upon these cute little tykes in uniform sitting below the Met's Monets in the 19th-Century European Paintings Galleries. I especially love to see kids engaged in art—I believe that instilling a passion for art in children and the general public is one of the greatest purposes of the museum, and this is living proof. Children's view of art provides a fresh, innocent perspective often allowing the essence of the piece to shine.
