Inferring With Art: A Couple

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV opens for new memberships on December 1st, 2020. Join the wait list to get more information.

What's going on in this room? There are shoes everywhere! Are those… oranges? Let's make some inferences!


Students will make inferences about this piece of art, back it up with evidence, and then adjust their inference based on new information.

You can find a full-sized image of the painting here.


  1. First, students will simply note interesting details about this painting.
  2. Next, they'll try to make an inference about what is going on in this scene.
  3. Finally, after I explain a little about the painting, they will refine or redo their inference - even writing a small story if they'd like!
