Making a Movie to Teach

Artists from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts spent Thursday at local schools teaching students about anti-bullying through the art of clay animation.

Twenty art students at Broadway High School created clay figurines to be used in a movie that will be shown to the entire school later this year.

The movie's theme is tolerance and anti-bullying. Students say they're happy to use their creativity to teach a lesson.

Sophomore Katie Yankey says, "Even in this movie it shows that you shouldn't just be a bystander and stand there and watch. That you should step in because then you wouldn't hurt anybody."

Junior Eric Bange says, "It's just tolerance. I mean, it's more common courtesy. It's just not singling people out just because they are new to something."

Artists from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts travel to high schools across Virginia all year long to spread the anti-bullying message of tolerance. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
