Here’s a three-year-old Fred Sanders essay called “How to Look at Art”:

Even more awkward is the moment when you encounter a painting that grips you. For some reason it stands out from the crowd of images you’ve already seen and makes a powerful connection. You like it. It moves you. You’ve seen something new and interesting here. But after about 90 seconds, you have to admit that you don’t really know what to do next.

He offers practical tips on how to “look more gooder” and thus, how to access art in a way that can make viewing more enjoyable for the layman.
