How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Would you try to paint a copy of a masterpiece—especially if you weren’t an artist? What do you think drives Tim Jenison to try? Would you be willing to give up this much time and money to explore your theory?

Do you feel Tim has found proof that Vermeer used technical tools to create his masterpieces? If so, do you feel that makes the Dutch painter less of an artist?
