Experience the magic inspired by a DCPS teacher
Artobet: A Magical Adventure of Artists from A to Z! is a children's narrative film inspired by by the unique early curriculum developed by Eleanor Palm, a first grade teacher at Key Elementary, produced by DC's Carol Pineau, filmmaker and DCPS parent, and features 40 kids from the area. It's a wonderful success story of DCPS. The 45-minute film is ideal for children 3-8, but with engaging stories, beautiful artwork, easy-to-chant poems, plus cameo appearances by the Tooth Fairy, Cookie Bandit and George Washington.
The film premieres at Kid's Euro Festival October 16 at 2:30 pm at the French Embassy (4101 Reservoir Rd NW).
