More choice based art at the Hancock County Art Show!

The marble runs were a big hit at the County Art Show. Mrs. Hall, the art teacher at Greenfield Central Junior High School, the host of the show, told me her 7th and 8th graders wanted to make marble runs too!

I think the marble runs have provided one of the most satisfying building/construction experiences to our students ever.

Working with gravity, slope and basic attachment techniques has never been more gratifying.

They're beautiful - of course. I love the serious student look on the adults' faces as they think about your kids' artwork. Please extend congrats to your kiddos - their work makes me smile.
