We started our first Teen Advisory Group meeting of the 2012–13 school year with the question "If you were a book, would you rather be a fairytale or a mystery?" When we were asked to write a blog post introducing other teenagers to our favorite galleries at the Metropolitan Museum, that question stuck in our minds. We invite you to read the following tale about three knights who found themselves in the Museum's Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture.

As a disclaimer, I don't know how efficiently or elegantly I can write about my experience during the Art and Film Intensive, so when the following feels disjointed, please feel free to add joints, and kindly bear with me.

Last week, Audrey wrote a blog post about the Met's Drawing and Painting Experiments teen class. I also participated in a summer teen program at the Met: the Art and Film Intensive, a three-week course taught by staff from the New York Film Academy and the Metropolitan Museum.

Like Evelin, from whom you heard last week, I participated in the Met's Drawing and Painting Experiments program this summer. This is my third year doing the program, and I have found that each year is unique because of the different projects and the student artists who participate.

Last week, Jamilah and Genevieve wrote the final post related to the Spies in the House of Art exhibition and the Teen Advisory Group's photography project. Over the next month, our blog posts will focus on two of the Met's summer teen programs.

Like our fellow TAG members, we spent the last meeting of the summer taking photographs of things that inspired us in the Museum. We found ourselves fascinated by how people reacted to works of art in the galleries—looking closer, taking photographs, and talking to each other about how they felt about the art.

As frequent visitors to the Met, we often create personal connections with the works of art we see in the galleries. In the Teen Advisory Group's recent photo adventure throughout the Museum, we attempted to integrate the works of art into our own reality.

As Kristen and Ethan wrote last week, the Teen Advisory Group spent its last meeting of the summer wandering around the Museum with cameras. As we explored the building, we learned that the Met provides a space in which people can both socialize with others and meditate by themselves. Our photographs show people who discovered really cool spots at the Met to hang out with friends or to spend time on their own.

Inspired by the photography, film, and video exhibition Spies in the House of Art, we spent our final Teen Advisory Group meeting of the summer roaming around the Met's galleries with cameras in search of subjects for our own artwork.

There are many types of art—photographs, film, and video—in the exhibition Spies in the House of Art. I found several of the works in this exhibition quite amusing and a little strange. I was particularly interested in The Monuments of Paris by Laura Larson because it looks at first glance like a conventional tourist photograph.
