Day at the Met 2014

June 9, 2014

Thanks to the generous support of our corporate sponsor, Capgemini, Arts For All was able to offer our 11th annual A Day at the Met field trip to over 70 children on May 10th.  The field trip aims to expose children to the classics, inviting them to fully explore all the Metropolitan Museum has to offer. We serve different groups of children each year, and this year our participants were elementary students from PS 163 in the Bronx and teenagers from New Alternatives for Children. Approximately 96% of students in PS 163 live below the poverty rate, while NAC youth are living with medical disabilities and/or chronic illnesses. Students from both groups were eager and enthusiastic to learn throughout the day, evidenced by their active participation in art discussions. In reference to our volunteer organizer Renee Brown’s blog entry on last year’s event, “encouraging the enthusiasm and insights the students have for the art shown is an incredibly powerful
tool in fostering the continuation of excitement for the works of art and culture that they will continue to encounter as they grow and develop into adults.”

Here are some photos from the day. Arts For All would like to thank Capgemini for sponsoring the field trip and providing a team of enthusiastic volunteers. We’d also like to thank the dedicated Arts For All volunteers who donated their Saturday to help spread their love of art to the children we serve!
