Drawing activity suitable for all ages.
Master of the Kress Epiphany, The Expulsion of the Money-Changers, c. 1480–1500. Oil on panel, 167 x 98 cm. Gift of Joey and Toby Tanenbaum, 1988. © Art Gallery of Ontario. 88/340.
This painting shows a story from the Christian Bible: Jesus sends the merchants and their animals out of the temple because he believed it should be a place for worship, not buying and selling.
Can you find these details in the painting? Sacks of coins, strange men, a baby, a goat and…wait – is that a bit of poop?!
Take a few minutes to see how many coins can you find in your home. How many bowls are there?
Are there more coins or bowls? Draw them to visualize how many of each you found.
If you have access to a printer, print the activity card.
If you do not have access to a printer, follow along and draw your artworks using paper you have available at home.
Make your artwork as realistic or not as you wish!
