GOOD EVENING.

AND WELCOME TO NYC ARTS.

I'M PAULA ZAHN AT THE TISC STUDIOS AT LINCOLN CENTER.

TONIGHT ON OUR PROGRAM, WE'D LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT A REALL FANTASTIC PROGRAM FOR KIDS THE STUDIO IN A SCHOOL PROGRAM FOUNDED IN 1977 BY PHILANTHROPIST AGNES GUND, STUDIO IN A SCHOOL HAS BEE TEACHING VISUAL ARTS TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF NEW YORK CIT CHILDREN IN UNDERSERVED PUBLIC SCHOOLS, DAY CARE CENTERS AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS.

THE STUDIO HIRES ONL PROFESSIONAL WORKING ARTISTS T TEACH ITS PROGRAMS AND EVERY YEAR HUNDREDS OF THE APPLY.

THROUGH THE TEACHERS WORK ETHI AND THEIR ENTHUSIASM, STUDENTS LEARN THAT ART IS A WHOLE LO MORE THAN SKILL.

IT'S A PROCESS OF EXPLORATIO AND DISCOVERY.

THIS SHORT FILM WAS PROVIDED T US BY OUR FRIENDS AT CHRISTIES ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪

WE DID PAINTING, ANIMATION, AND NOW WE'RE ON PAINTING CLAY

WE SHARE OUR INNER EMOTIONS

AND WE LEARN WHAT COLORS GO WITH WHAT COLORS

ALL THE PRIMARY COLORS.

YEAH, THE PRIMARY COLORS.

AND THEN THE TERTIARY COLORS.

YOU AND YOUR PARTNER AR GOING TO DO A SERIES OF GESTUR DRAWINGS YOU'LL BE CREATING A COLLAGE O A GESTURE OF YOUR CHOOSING, AN IT NEEDS TO BE CONNECTED WITH SPORT.

WE'RE IN THE BRONX I TEACH CLASSES FIRST THROUG FIFTH GRADE.

I'M HERE FOUR DAYS A WEEK.

I BELIEVE WE'RE GETTING THE KIDS TO BE ABLE TO ARTICULATE THEMSELVES TO CREATE VISUAL THAT' IMPORTANT, MEANINGFUL AN LANGUAGE OF WORDS.

TRYING TO TEACH THEM DIFFERENT SKILL SETS REALLY TRY TO EDUCATE THEM O DIFFERENT TYPES OF TOOLS THA THEY'RE ABLE TO USE.

WE'RE AT PS-134-M IN TH LOWER EAST SIDE.

AND I TEACH THE ENTIRE SCHOO FROM PRE-K TO FIFTH GRADE.

ASIDE FROM GETTING THE HANDS-O DIRECT ARTMAKING COMPONENT, THINK THAT IT REALLY BUILD THEIR CONFIDENCE, THEIR PROBLE SOLVING SKILLS I THINK BECOM MORE DEVELOPED, MORE SOPHISTICATED.

THE MORE ART THAT THEY HAVE, THE MORE CAPABLE THEY BECOME WIT IDENTIFYING A PROBLEM AND THEN FIGURING OUT A CREATIV SOLUTION

THE STUDIO IN A SCHOO CREATES COLLABORATIONS BETWEEN ARTISTS AND SCHOOLS.

A PROGRAM THAT BRINGS THE UNIQUE TALENTS OF ARTISTS T COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT NEW YOR CITY STARTED BY AGNES GUND, IT WA REALLY A RESPONSE THAT ART I THE FISCAL CRISIS HAS BEEN BASICALLY ELIMINATED AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LEVEL.

BUT WITH 1976 WHERE I REA THE ARTICLE IN 'THE NEW YORK TIMES' THAT THEY HAD CUT ALL PROGRAMS IN THE ARTS, MUSIC, DANCE, THEATER AND VISUAL ARTS THEN I THOUGHT NOBODY SHOULD B WITHOUT ART.

IT'S TOO IMPORTANT

SO STUDIO ARTISTS INSTRUCTORS COME TO THE CITY AND THEY SERV NEARLY 200 SCHOOLS THROUGHOU NEW YORK WE WORK WITH LARGELY K TO PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT THE CITY AND IN ADDITION TO THAT WE SERVE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS THROUGH APPRENTICESHIPS AND INTERNSHIPS.

WE'VE TAKEN A STAND THAT ARTS EDUCATION IS VITAL FOR OUR STUDENTS AND STUDIO IN A SCHOO FOR US IS AN INCREDIBLE, POWERFUL, IMPORTANT PART OF OU SCHOOL COMMUNITY

FOURTH GRADE WE REALLY AR WORKING ON DEVELOPING HAND/EYE COORDINATION IN TERMS OF LOOKING AT SOMETHING AND REALLY BEIN ABLE TO DESCRIBE WHAT THEY ARE SEEING AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR, WE OPENED UP WITH A STIL LIFE UNIT.

WE LOOKED AT CEZANNE AND HENRI MATISSE.

THEN LOOKED AT HIGHLIGHTS AN SHADOWS, THE LIGHT SOURCE.

WE EXPERIMENTED WITH COLORS TRY TO MAKE THE COLORS W WANTED

THEN AS MS. YELEY SAYS, USING PROFESSIONALS.

WE WERE LOOKING AT JOHN JAMES AUDUBON.

WE WERE REALLY TRYING T CAPTURE THE SOUND OF THE BIRDS AND WHAT YOU WITNESS WHEN YO SEE BIRDS.

SORT OF AN INTERACTION BETWEEN LIKE MAN AND NATURE.

WE HAD AN AUCTION AND A VER TERRIFIC AUCTION TO HELP WIT THE COLLAGE AND WE DON'T WANT TO GIVE THAT UP SO WE STARTED COMING HERE.

THIS IS THE TOP OF THE TREES.

USUALLY IN REAL LIFE THERE'S A LOT OF BIRDS THERE SO WE DECIDED TO GET OUT SOM BIRDS AND PLACE THEM ON TH BRANCHES SO IT CAN LOOK LIKE A REAL

I'VE BEEN WITH THE STUDIO I A SCHOOL FOR 26 YEARS, I THINK AND THIS IS A SCHOOL IN EAST HARLEM, PS-1-12.

THIS IS PREK THROUGH SECON GRADE.

WHAT THEY LEARN IN THIS SETTIN IS ESSENTIAL TO DEVELOPING THEIR MIND YOU CAN SEE FROM WHAT YOU WATC TODAY WITH MY SECOND GRADE STUDENTS, MY STUDENTS HAVE A ABILITY TO LOOK AT ART WIT CONFIDENCE, SO THEY CAN WALK INTO ANY SETTING, LOOK AT PIECE OF ART AND START TO SPEA ABOUT IT WITH AN AWARENESS O WHAT THEY'RE SEEING AND WHY THEY THINK IT'S IMPORTANT WHY THEY THINK IT'S INTERESTING.

I COME BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN TO HOW YOU CAN USE COLOR AND LINE TO EXPRESS EMOTION THAT ARTISTS MAKE THOSE CHOICE ALL THE TIME THEY'RE CREATING A TONE OR MOO IN THEIR PAINTINGS AND THEY DEVELOP NEW VOCABULAR WORDS, AND THEY WERE USING WORDS LIKE ECSTATIC AND GLOOMY AND IF YOU'RE ACTUALLY TRYING TO CREATE THAT FEELING, WHAT COLORS ARE YOU GOING TO USE TO EVOK IT

EVERYONE KNOWS THAT ART I EVERYWHERE BECAUSE COLOR IS ART MY BACKGROUND, I USED IT T EXPRESS WHAT I'M FEELING SO TH PEOPLE KNOW WHAT I FEEL.

WHEN WE LOOK BACK AT TH PAINTINGS, SHE TOLD US HOW DO WE THING WE FEELS AND WHY DO WE THINK THAT

I'M A NEW YORK PAINTER.

SURFACE IS IMPORTANT, COLOR IS IMPORTANT.

I WORK PRIMARILY IN OILS THE LAST FEW YEARS I'VE BEEN WORKING MORE ON INTERESTIN SURFACES, MYLAR, AND IT GIVE THIS FEELING OF CAUSTIC.

I'M A PAINTER, I WORK IN ACRYLICS I LOVE WORKING LARGE SCALE, BU OF COURSE LIVING IN NEW YORK CITY, I HAVE TO SORT OF PARE THAT DOWN A LITTLE MY WORK IS MOSTLY OF INTERIORS AND EXTERIORS, THE HOUSES AN DIFFERENT SPACES THAT I'VE INHABITED OVER THE YEARS IT HAS A LOT TO DO WITH TH PROCESS OF MEMORY.

I'M A PORTRAIT ARTIST PRIMARILY.

THE KIDS LOVE TO SEE MY ARTWORK.

THEY GET TO SEE IT WHEN I' DOING A DEMONSTRATION IN EAC CLASS.

I THINK IT REALLY GOES BAC WATCHING ME GET FRUSTRATED AND HAVING TO PROBLEM SOLVE.

AND I THINK IT REALLY GIVES THEM LICENSE AND OWNERSHIP TO BE ABLE TO DO THE SAME ♪♪

SO NICE WONDERFUL PARTNERS HOSTING THI EVENT, SHARING THE WORK THAT'S BEEN PRODUCED IN STUDIO WITH OUR COMMUNITY.

I FEEL LUCKY BECAUSE THIS I A VERY FAMOUS PLACE AND MY ARTWORK IS HERE.

IT'S GOOD TO SEE ARTWOR DISPLAYED AROUND HERE.

I GET TO SEE MINE.

AND MY GRANDPARENTS SEE HOW USED COLORS.

THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR THA CHRISTIES HAS A SHOW WITH OU CHILDREN IT BRINGS TOGETHER THE FAMILIE OF THE KIDS THAT DO THEM

THEY ARE SO MUCH VISUAL LEARNERS OR SPATIAL LEARNERS THAT THIS SETTING IS GOING TO BE SO ESSENTIAL FOR THEM.

AND AT AN EARLY AGE WHEN YO GIVE KIDS ART, THEY MAKE A EXPRESSIVE CONNECTION TO ARTMAKING, AND THAT'S A GIFT FOR LIFE

THEY NEED TO EXPRESS A NEED TO CREATE THAT'S INHERENTL THEIRS, THEIR NATURE I THINK WE ALL HAVE THIS PRIMA DESIRE TO JUST MAKE SOMETHIN AND TO SEE IT AND TO HOLD IT AND I THINK THERE'S A SENSE OF SATISFACTION THAT THEY GET FRO JUST BEING ABLE TO SORT OF CREATE A PAINTING, TO SHOW SOMEBODY AND TO LOOK AT IT THEMSELVES

> NOW, LET'S VISIT THE ROCKEFELLER ESTATE LOCATED JUS NORTH OF NEW YORK CITY IN WEST CHESTER COUNTY IT IS ONE OF THE GREATES ESTATES ON THE HISTORIC HUDSON VALLEY KIKA IS THE DUTCH WORD FOR LOOKOUT.

A FITTING NAME FOR THE HOUSE SITTING ON THE HIGHEST POINT O THE HILLS WITH COMMANDING VIEW OF THE HUDSON RIVER.

THE CLASSICAL REVIVAL STYL HOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1913 FOR JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER, FOUNDER OF STANDARD OIL, AND IN HIS DAY THE RICHEST MAN IN AMERICA HOME TO FOUR GENERATIONS O ROCKEFELLERS, TODAY THE HOUS AND EXTENSIVE GARDENS ENRICHED BY THE FAMILY'S SCULPTUR COLLECTION IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR TOURS.

YOU CAN ENJOY THE NEARBY UNION CHURCH WITH ITS STAINED GLAS WINDOWS BY HENRI MATISSE AND MARC CHAGALL COMMISSIONED BY THE ROCKEFELLER COMPANY FAMILY

KYKUIT IS THE HOME TO THE ROCKEFELLER FAMILY FOUR GENERATIONS OF FAMILY T HAVE LIVED IN THIS HOME.

AND IT IS CONSIDERED THE FAMIL SEAT FOR JOHN DAVIDSON ROCKEFELLER SR THE WORD KYKUIT IS AB OLD DUTC WORD IT MEANS LOOKOUT OR OVERLOOK IT IS FITTING BECAUSE WE'RE 50 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL PERFECT AREA FOR A BEAUTIFUL HOME THE HOUSE IS DONE IN THE CLASSICAL STYLE AND THE GARDEN ARE GARDENS THAT YOU MIGHT FIN IN AN ITALIAN VILLA.

THE ORIGINAL BUILDING OF KYKUI WAS IN 1909 WHEN THE FAMIL MOVED IN THEY REDID THE FAA SAD IN 1913 WITH A PEDIMENT.

WITHIN THAT THE TWO LARG FIGURES ONE BEING APOLLO, TH GOD OF THE ARTS AND THE OTHE BEING THE GODDESS OF AGRICULTURE.

AND THAT WAS THE SYMBOL OF UNITY BETWEEN NATURE AND CULTURE SOMETHING THAT THIS ESTATE WAS MEANT TO EMBODY.

THERE WERE TWO IMPORTANT ARCHITECTS THAT WE HAD WORKING ON THIS HOME ONE BEING OGDEN COTMAN WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INTERIORS OF THIS HOME.

WILLIAM BOSWORTH CREATED ALL THE GARDENS THAT YOU SEE THROUGHOU THIS ESTATE.

THE ONES THAT ARE AROUND THE HOUSE ARE MUCH MORE FORMAL AND THE FURTHER OUT YOU GO, TH FURTHER YOUR EYE LOOKS THE BECOME MORE INFORMAL AND GRADUATE INTO THE LANDSCAPE.

JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER JR. WAS TH ONE WHO PUT A LOT OF CLASSICAL SCULPTURE ON THE GROUND.

OCEANIS IS THE LARGEST FOUNTAI WE HAVE ON THIS ESTATE IT WAS PLACED HERE IN 1913 IT WAS FASHIONED AFTER THE OCEANIS THAT YOU FIND IN THE BOBOLI GARDENS IN FLORENCE ITALY.

OCEANIS BEING THE KING OF TH RIVER GODS COMMANDING TH FIGURES TO POUR FORTH WATER INTO THE OCEANS THERE ARE THREE FIGURES THER AND THEY REPRESENT THE RIVERS OF THE OLD WORLD, THE GANGES, THE EUPHRATES AND THE NILE THE REASON IT IS LOOKING TO TH WEST IS BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO LINK THE HUDSON RIVER, THE RIVER OF THE NEW WORLD, TO THE RIVER OF THE OLD WORLD NELSON ROCKEFELLER WAS THE GRANDSON OF JOHN D. ROCKEFELLE SR HE RESIDED HERE WITH THE THIRD GENERATION OF FAMILY WHAT HE GAVE TO THIS ESTATE WA SCULPTURE AND ART.

WE HAVE FIVE ART GALLERIES I THE DOWNSTAIRS AREA OF THIS HOME FILLED WITH MODERN ART WE HAVE MORE THAN 70 PIECES OF OUTDOOR SCULPTURE ALONE RANGIN FROM HENRY MOORE TO NOGUCHI.

HE WAS PASSIONATE ABOUT ART.

A GREAT COLLECTOR OF THE ARTS.

AND HE CONSIDERED HIMSELF AN ENVIRONMENTAL ARTIST BY THAT HE MEANT HE WAS GOING TO STUDY THE ENVIRONMENT, FIN WHERE THE BEST LOCATION FOR EACH OF HIS OUTDOOR PIECES WOULD BE SO THAT SCULPTURE WOULD ENHANC NATURE AND, IN TURN, NATUR WOULD ENHANCE THAT PIECE O SCULPTURE.

TRIANG YOU'LL LAR SURFACE AN SPACE BY THE ARTIST MAX BILL IT IS SET AT THE END OF THE ROSE PERGOLA.

IT OVERLOOKS THE HUDSON RIVE AND IT'S AS IF IT'S A TELESCOPIC VIEW OF THE HUDSON THE INNER GARDEN IS FLANKED BY TWO SUNKEN GARDENS WHEN NELSON LIVED HERE HE HA PUT IN SUNKEN SWIMMING POOLS WHICH MAKES THE PIECE THAT H PUT IN BETWEEN THE TWO POOLS PERFECTLY SITUATED SHE LOOKS AS IF SHE'S GOING TO JUMP INTO THE WATER.

WHEN NELSON LIVED HERE, SH COULD HAVE NELSON ROCKEFELLER WANTE EVERYBODY TO ENJOY WHAT HE HAD ENJOYED THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE.

SO HE PUT IN HIS WILL THAT WHE HE PASSED AWAY, THIS HOME WOUL BE GIVEN TO THE NATIONAL TRUST FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION ALON WITH 87 ACRES SURROUNDING THIS ESTATE THAT WOULD BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND TOURS WOULD BE GIVE TO THE PUBLIC BY HISTORIC HUDSON VALLEY KYKUIT THE ROCKEFELLER ESTATE IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC MAY THROUGH MID-NOVEMBER ♪♪ ♪♪
