Students see the artwork up close, ask questions, learn about the process, and are   encouraged to value their own creativity. Teachers have   the opportunity to integrate the activity in with their own curriculum. 

        • Urban Art Bike Program Design and build a fully functional kinetic sculpture with your class, (aka: ”Art Car”). Students will broaden their artistic access, deepen learning as they integrate other    educational disciplines into their art such as engineering and math. Art 120 will provide a bicycle for your class, create a gameplan with you after the first brainstorming session, and organize on-site workshops tailored to your  students’ design. All work completed in time will have  the opportunity to exhibit in the Scenic City Art Car Weekend.
