Original Summary:
"In this program, students see how observing particular things about people can tell us something about what they are like, and how artists use such personal characteristics in portraits." -- St. Louis Public Schools Audiovisual Materials Catalog 2002-2007.

Part 5 of the "Arts Express" series.  

"This series help students see art as a way to express themselves, discover the elements and basic principles of visual art, and respond to art in their environment. It demonstrates how artists communicate about natural things and human experiences by means of visual art, music and dance." - Summary from Worldcat.

"The ARTS EXPRESS series of twenty 15-minute programs is designed for second, third, and fourth grade students as an introduction to the arts. "Beginning with a series of school pictures, Program 5, APPEARANCES, PORTRAITS & LIFESTYLES, explores the arts' capacity to reveal personal appearance, character and lifestyle. If we observe closely, the arts can tell us what a person is like as well as how he or she looks. "The narrator, Donald O'Connor, leads viewers through a series of visual artworks which clearly express various moods, activities, and circumstances. The program treats viewers to engaging portraits of boys and girls, heroes and villains, the rich and poor, and a variety of others. Dance sometimes gives us particularly strong impressions of personality. In this segment, two very funny individuals dance the quarrel scene between the stepsisters from CINDERELLA. We learn much more about these two characters than simply how they look. In the music segment, students learn that musicians also can portray personal characteristics, feelings, and moods. A troupe of mimes interpret the types of persons they hear described in selected pieces of music."-- 1983 Peabody Awards entry form.
