Students that attend Cultural Arts at Highland Elementary with Amy Myers enjoy art two days a week. Students were able to “grow a rainbow” by drawing the beginnings of a rainbow on wettable material then dipping the edge of it into water. The water rises upward through the material, lifting the dye molecules with it. From left, are Kylan Stevens and Kohlden Naquin with their experiments and finished art. (Submitted photo)
