Art Works Wonders

December 19, 2011

In our short film for an arts education program called ArtWorks, we captured the excitement and enthusiasm of a group of highly-energetic New York City third graders as they visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the first time. Sponsored by Learning Leaders, ArtWorks is an all-volunteer program that introduces painting, sculpture, decorative arts and architecture in a 6-week in-school course culminating with a museum visit for children who otherwise would not have such an opportunity. One of many touching moments in the film – as the children are looking at a Renaissance-era painting of a young prince surrounded by his toys and pets, the ArtWorks volunteer/guide asks the children whether the little boy in the painting is a prince or regular kid. After a moment of reflection, one of the kids in our group brilliantly answers “He’s both”. View the video on our youtube channel at http://youtu.be/fDk7O_Wczzo
