Students from Bethel Park's Benjamin Franklin Elementary have worked for the past few weeks with artist Paul W. Kruse to create animated films, as part of a multimedia, multi-isciplinary project called “A Closer Look.”

Kruse, a filmmaker and playwright originally from Wisconsin, is working with the district through the Gateway to the Arts program, based in East Liberty, which uses art to help students develop skills, like reading and writing abilities, that are used in math and science.

In the five-week program, students are making a short animated film that helps them understand how the different parts of a piece of art contribute to the whole.
