Re: Videos needed for elementary

There are some wonderful videos that are an hour long. They were originally
on HBO. They are about the lives of different artists but each one has a
child with a major part in it. They use actors - not animation. My
students love these videos. There's one about Degas, Monet, Goya, Cassatt
and maybe two or three more. The are extremely well done. I think they're
suitable for grades three and up. I enjoy them myself. A friend taped them
for me but they're available in catalogs now. Maybe Sax has them.
