This blog chronicles what art my K-5 Art students do in the Art room. The blog is set up to be a stream of art created by all my students. Sections for each grade help parents find their child's or children's work. It is important for parents and students to see the progression of art from Kindergarden through 5th Grade.

Henry Ford Museum's Maker Faire July 27th and 28th
The Insect Robots by my 5th Grade students were part of a display at the Henry Ford's Maker Faire on Saturday July 27th and Sunday July 28th from 9:30am to 6pm. The display also included a hands on art activity for children and adults. The concept behind the Insect Robots was to teach students that the body and in this case one of an insect is similar to a simple machine. Using mostly gears students were encouraged to show how the bug would move.
Many Thanks Abby and Ann. It was a success because of the two of you.
More images of students work below.
Students whose work was on display will get it back in the Fall.
