A Day at the Met

Every year in May, Arts For All partners with our wonderful sponsor, Capgemini to take a group of 50-60 children to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  This year, our A Day at the Met program took place on May 11, 2013 with students from PS 163 and youth from New Alternatives for Children.

Met 2013“My favorite part was the part when the man wears a lion as a hoodie. He was Hercules.” – 3rd grade student

In the morning, children take part in a museum highlights tour lead by a Met tour guide. Children later receive free lunch, and then they take part in an exhibit-specific tour in the afternoon led by an Arts For All artist.  In 2012, A Day at the Met took place on May 12. Please let us know if you are interested in volunteering!

“My favorite thing was Egypt. But this museum has a lot of different things that are very interesting.” – Student, P.S. 163
