[start by showing the children prints of famous paintings that feature children]  Look at these lovely paintings.  Can you see the children in them?  Have you ever had your picture taken?  It takes just a few seconds right?  On school picture day, you might have to pose for a minute or two.  But the children in these paintings had to pose for days and days.  Can you imagine standing in the same position and not moving for a very long time?  It must have been really hard.  This is the story of a little girl who was posing for an artist but she had lots of trouble standing still.  How will he ever finish his painting?
