Modern Art v. Toddler Art (and Kid Art)

A link has been going around to a quiz where you can see just how well you can tell the difference between modern art and toddler art.

Head on over and have fun. I got a score of 6. I'm terrible when it comes to modern art.

But I think some of these could have tripped others up too:

Now maybe everyone would recognize these as toddler or little kid art, but at least the artists of these don't complain if I've pictured them upside-down. :)

Elizabeth and Teresa had fun painting while Cecilia and Felicity painted their reliefs. A relief is a sculpture created by carving out around an image on a flat surface and removing the material around it such that the work appears raised above a lower field.

Now, no, they didn't carve out the modeling clay, but they did build it up with a lowered background so it at least looks like a relief. 

Cecilia's relief of St. Joseph and the baby Jesus.

Felicity's relief of St. Joseph and the baby Jesus.

Personally I think I prefer toddler art to modern art.
