I Feel You, NYC: Capturing the City’s Emotions through Paintings, Sculpture, and Song  

90 min program for Grades K-12 

From the menace of a grizzly rat scurrying through the subway tracks to the joy of girls with cornrows jumping double dutch on a hot summer day, life on New York City’s streets and subways has long inspired artists to create works that evoke the many emotions of living in the city. In this field trip, students will explore how paintings, sculpture, and music can be used as tools to express emotions like joy and loneliness as they hone their emotional vocabulary and reflect on their own experience of the city. After viewing the exhibition, students will take part in a hands-on art making activity and leave with their own NYC-inspired creation. This program is part of the Museum’s 100th anniversary year and focuses on social and emotional learning as we explore the city we call home.
