More from the Very, Very Magic Suitcase: TV interview with Portuguese news
Last month, Portuguese television news interviewed me about my work with the children of the Rita Gold Early Childhood Center at Columbia University's Teachers College.
The interview was shot during our exhibition "The Very Very Magic Suitcase and Other Art." It was a wonderful opportunity to share the children's work and the process behind the exhibition with a wider audience. We also heard from the mother of Sahana, one of the artists whose work was being exhibited, and from Dr. Judith Burton, director of Art & Art Education at Teachers College.
We talked about the importance of art in the lives of young children and its part in the Rita Gold's curriculum. Of course I mentioned how lucky I am to be able to teach both very young children and graduate students on a daily basis!
Even if your Portuguese fails you, Judith's segment of the interview is in English, and you can also see images of the gallery and the children's work. There's also some nice examples of Augmented Reality being used as a curatorial tool in this exhibition.
