Todd,

"Energy Art" sounds like a cool idea! My first thought was that light is
energy and all visual art requires light. Some sort of value drawing of
light and shadow might be fun. Solargrams or photograms could be tied in to
illustrate light energy, too. If they were more advanced then perhaps you
could do pinhole photography with them.

I attended Woodbury Friends School through to the third grade, in Woodbury,
NJ. It was a wonderful experience! Although there may have been art
lessons, I can't seem to remember any. Of course that was quite a while ago
and although I have a really good memory, it doesn't seem to last very long
anymore.

Let us know what you come up with! Good luck,

Mark Alexander
