When is a line more than a line? Painter Wayne Thiebaud demonstrates how artists use lines in unexpected ways as he creates a portrait of an ice cream cone. In-class activities help students learn how lines can describe the shape, and even movement, of objects. Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, demonstrates how lines can suggest movement in comic strips. Behind the Scenes is an exciting and fun exploration for children and adults alike into the world of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, music, dance and theater. Produced & Directed by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer. Hosted by Penn and Teller.
