Holiday Arts Break #1

by admin

Our Holiday Arts Break Activities are inspired by the New York International Children’s Film Festival’s Kid Flicks programs. (You can view these fantastic short films from around the world in our virtual screening room.) Our Arts Breaks are meant to spark meaningful family discussions and to encourage kids of all ages to stay creative and connected through the holiday season.

Here’s our first Arts Break:

Cat Lake City is the first short film you see in Kid Flicks One. It’s a fun and silly animated story about a little cat just trying to get some peace and quiet. There’s no dialogue in this short film, which creates a great opportunity to focus on sound effects. Do you know what a Foley Artist is? Check out the video in the Suggested Activity to find out!
