Fourth and fifth graders from the Arts & Technology Academy in Northeast Washington, DC premiered a short documentary called “Teaching what you love: Ms. Cuffy’s passion for music and her students.” The film is an inspirational portrait of local Teaching Artist and Cellist Elise Cuffy.
The film was facilitated by MHP Education Director Brandon Kramer as part of the Kennedy Center’s On Location media education project.
The On Location project is a national media education residency program designed to bring media literacy and technology to schools, teachers and students across the country. In Spring 2010, Brandon facilitated documentary filmmaking projects to youth at ten middle schools across the country as part of the On Location program.
