Abstract:

Young Eric spends Christmas holiday with his grandmother in Spanish Harlem. After they prepare their traditional Puerto Rican celebration, Eric and Grandma visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a school project, where he sees a painting by Diego Velasquez and realizes for the first time that he could be an artist when he grows up. Grandma recognizes his fascination, and presents Eric with the perfect Christmas gift-- a sketchbook and colored pencils-- to use in his first steps toward becoming an artist.
