On May 21st, 2015, the Cultural Agents Initiative partnered with Harvard’s Public School Partnerships to organize a family event at the Harvard Ed Portal in Allston. Children and adults used an excerpt from The Little Prince to make art based on their interpretations. The multilingual event introduced the public to Pre-Texts, showing children and adults ways to build literacy skills through art making.
“It’s a great way to get students talking about complex texts in a very fun way,” said Karen Wonton, who works with Boston Public Schools’ Parent University.
