Inspired by Janet Echelman and wind, work with 7th Grade visual art students to create their own wind-activated sculptures.

Meaningful beauty in the everyday does not impose itself -- sensitivity to it must be cultivated for it to be perceived. Janet Echelman's work inspired an office-bound attorney to lie down in the grass in her suit and look up at the sky. How can we students of art help inspire the same response in our school community by making sculptures inspired by Ms. Echelman?
