The Met: #MetKids—Our Words, Our Stories: Digital Storytelling Lab 2016

Go behind the scenes of our pilot #MetKids Digital Storytelling Lab for 8–12-year-olds, held July 18-July 21, 2016. Exploring artworks in the galleries, kids found inspiring heroes and villains for their original stories. Our young authors worked in small teams to write action-packed adventure stories with multiple endings. Find out what was in their toolbox!


#MetKids is a digital feature made for, with and by kids!
