In March 2023, Artist Jeff Koons visited a Studio in a School class at Brooklyn Landmark Elementary School to teach a special lesson on his famous Balloon Dog sculptures.
Thankfully, we caught it all in the video below! Not only does this video capture the joy that Koons’ lesson brought to students, but also it shares the artist’s wise words on the value of arts education.
Thank you, Jeff, for sharing your time and talent with the Studio students! We are so grateful for your friendship and support.
SPECIAL THANKS to the wonderful students of Brooklyn Landmark Elementary School and their Principal Joyce Beckles-Knights, Assistant Principal Gina Dawson, Teacher Mr. Hightsmith, and Studio Artist Instructor Mildor Chevalier.
ADDITIONAL THANKS to our Founder Agnes Gund, our President Alison Scott-Williams, Paul Thompson, Executive Director, NYCDOE Office of Arts and Special Projects, Dr. Khalek Kirkland, NYCDOE Superintendent of Community School District 23, and Macey Tam and Lauran Rothstein of Jeff Koons’ Studio.
