e1enac As the Fall program of #NYCDOETeenThursdays ended today, I joined MS 343 & the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture to explore the ideas of freedom and emancipation through the art of movement. These 7th & 8th graders engaged in thoughtful discussions about resistance, bravery, and public opinion. Then, they inspired us with their expressive tableaus. Didn't you know that an artful response can impact public opinion? 1w

e1enac How do you want to be portrayed? I joined 7th graders from IS 218 for this weekend edition of #NYCDOETeenThursdays at The Studio Museum in Harlem! We learned how to create and use portraitures to express our individual histories and make connections to our community. Did you know that the Museum used to be a bank? 2w

e1enac "the illusion of weight is vital to believability" - iconic animator chuck jones. he believed that a thorough knowledge of anatomy was required when drawing believable characters. in this drawing, he is influenced by the lines in degas' dancers. and if animation isn't your thing, there's also an interactive exhibit on the history of video/arcade games! 2w

e1enac I met up with 8th graders from IS 145 today at Louis Armstrong's House for #NYCDOETeenthursdays! For the past 6 weeks, students learned about Louis' influence on Jazz and the civil rights movement, but most importantly they learned that "He was just like us! He lived right here in Corona, Queens!" The house is now a museum so stop by and check out his amazing bathroom (only Elvis did it better)! 2w
  •   e1enac Did you know that Louis Armstrong's first instrument was the cornet (not a trumpet), which he bought with a $5 loan from the Karnofsky family, who took him in as a child? He not only paid back the loan at $0.50 a week, but he honored the family by wearing a Star of David pendant for the rest of his life. 2w
