Conceptual art in school

Image: Year six group discussing the scale of pre-rahaelite work by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones

The age group frequently guided around Southampton City Art Gallery is between 7-11 (KS 2). It is uplifting to see children interacting and responding to artwork around them. Children seem to appreciate more classical work from Baroque and the Early Renaissance periods.
What has influenced children to believe that great art is defined through time spent on a piece of work and a craft mastered?
It is time to encourage those who enjoy artwork to understand the value of conceptual art, development of ideas used when creating. When children are given the opportunity to believe their work is valuable, because of ideas based on representations of the world around them, not on their ability to measure their craftsmansip against a peer, children will access the arts more easily.
