We’re out for the day, but boy do we have a link for you! Thanks to a tip from an art educator yesterday, I was alerted to Red Studio MoMA, a program for teens now hosting their podcasts about MoMA’s Painting & Sculpture galleries. It’s a project that has the potential to be an utter bore, but I have to say, the kids really pull it off. Their thoughts are better articulated than most adult visitors I over hear in that building, their discussion both insightful and hilarious! I personally recommend Jasper Johns Flag. Podcasters Karina and Alexandra found a choice Johns quote to use in their talk.
