Take a Field Trip to the Art Museum | Boca Raton Museum of Art | KidVision Pre-K


(whimsical music) – Hi, I’m Ms. Penny, and
these are the Kid Vision kids, and we’re here today
to find out about art. – Well, we’re so happy
that you’re here today. Welcome to the Boca Raton Museum of Art. My name is Mrs. Clum, and, today, we’re gonna be looking
at different artwork. We’re in a museum, and so, a museum is a collection of interesting things. And, here at the museum, we’ll
be looking at sculptures, and paintings, and drawings
and other fun things. – And how should we behave
when we’re in the museum? – Well, it’s just like being in school, so we walk together, we
use our inside voices. No running around, but one
of the most important things to do is remember not
to touch the artwork. – Okay, we can do that right? Thumbs up? Yes! We’re ready. – Alright, super. Let’s
go and have some fun. (popping sound) This is Mr. Glickman,
and he’s going to tell us about some of the art here. – So, here we are at a realistic painting. Can everybody say realistic? – [Penny And The Kids] Realistic. – Great, does anybody
know what that means? No? Well, it has the word real in it. So, when we look at real things, like a bird, is a bird real? – Yes. – Is a house real?
– Yes. – And what do we see in this painting? – A truck.
– Is this real? – [Penny And The Kids] Yes. – Yes, so this is a realistic painting. It’s by the artist, Ralph Goings, and he gave it the title Morgan Semi Rig. – It almost looks like a
photograph. Doesn’t it? It’s hard to believe it’s a painting. I guess, that’s why it’s
realistic. It looks real. – That’s right, it looks
very real. That’s correct. Can we close our eyes and think of what sounds the truck might make? – (mimics car engine)
– Nice sounds. – [Penny] We have some good sounds here. – [Luis] What do you think
the horn sounds like? (car horn)
– Beep beep! – Okay, great. And where is this truck? – It’s parked outside, blocking the way. – How do you know it’s outside? – Because I see trees and sky and clouds. – [Luis] And do you see the
roadway that it’s parked on? – Yes!
– Okay, great. – Well, great. So this is
one type of realistic art. Do we have other examples? – Yes, we do, so what we’re gonna do now, let’s fasten our seatbelts. Everybody, fasten their seatbelts. (seatbelt clicks) Let’s take hold of our
steering wheels, and let’s go. – We’re driving (imitates engine sounds) Where are we going? (splash and pop) – We’ve taken our drive
over from the truck that we looked at, and
we parked ourselves, and here we are at the sea
by the artist, John Marin, and it’s called Sea and Boat Number One. Can someone tell us what this
realistic painting has in it? – A boat. – That’s a boat.
– And water! – Is it a bright and sunny day? – No!
– No, what kind of day? – A windy day! – It’s a windy day, how can you tell? – Because in the clouds are different. – The clouds are different?
What about the ocean? The water, what is it?
– It’s looking very wavy. – It’s looking very wavy. – And if we were on that boat,
how would we look right now? What would be happening to us? – How would your body be moving
if you were on that boat? Uh oh, you have to get your sea legs, and you have to balance yourself. So you can stay on the water. Well, it’s nice to see you again. – I’m glad to join in on the fun. Here, we have another realistic painting. Who are these people? – Twins.
– They’re maybe twins. – Or sisters.
– Or sisters. Very good. This is what
you’d call a portrait. A portrait is a painting
or a picture of people. It can be one person, or here we have… – Two!
– Two people here. And you are right that they are sisters, because on the label you can
see that it’s called Sisters. – [Penny] What are they
doing to their hair? – Braiding it.
– They’re braiding it. – So I want you to take a closer look at the way in which they
are posing themselves. When you are in a pose, you have your body in a certain position. So, what I’d like for you to do is to try to recreate this pose
that you see right here. Well, now we’re going to look at a different type of portrait. We’re going to look at
this. It’s a sculpture. So this has three dimensions
to it. So it has form. A painting is flat, and a
sculpture has form to it. – What does the sign say?
The sign will give us a clue. – The two sisters. – The two sisters. So what
do you think those are? – Sisters.
– They’re sisters. – So we were looking at a
painting of two sisters, and now we’re looking at a sculpture. – [Penny] And it looks
like it’s a windy day. – [Claire] They’re fixing their hair. They’re holding on to each other, and, so, they are being blown by the wind. – So if you were gonna strike a pose, and it’s a windy day, how
would you stand on a windy day? Start walking, it’s a
really windy day oh no! Hold on! We’re a sculpture of a windy day! We did it. Great! Can we see some more sculptures? – Yes, let’s take that windy ride over around the corner to
look at some sculptures. So, come on, let’s fly! (wind blowing) (upbeat music) – Well now we’re going to
look at some abstract art. Do you know what abstract art is? It’s something from your imagination where you use lines and colors. It’s nothing that’s realistic. So, right now, we’re in a
gallery full of abstract art. – Wonderful, so abstracts have
a lot of shapes and lines, but they don’t really have
to look like anything. They’re just art, beautiful creative art. So, let’s find pieces of abstract art that has your favorite shape in it. (popping sounds) Which shape do you see? Triangles. What shape do you see? Squares. What shape do you see? Circle. – So now that we’ve looked
at some abstract art, up in the museum galleries,
we’re going to create some of our own abstract art. It just comes out of your imagination. It’s colors and lines and shapes. I’d like you all to pick up your pencil, and I want you to draw
just like we see here. They don’t have to be exactly like this; they can be anywhere
you want on the paper. And we’re gonna start coloring them in. We can outline the shapes
if we like the lines. We can use dots; we can
use little circles to make different patterns in
different colors on the papers. So you ready? – Yes.
– Let’s go. (upbeat music) – [All] Bye!
