Elementary students in Allen Park are getting an art lesson outside the classroom.
Lindemann Elementary students participated in a project called Art for the Sky.
They got help from a world renowned artist named Daniel Dancer.
Nearly 700 students were assigned different colored shirts and were placed on the grass to form a Kirtland Warbler. It is a bird on Michigan's endangered species list.
This is the first school in Michigan to participate in this project.
The Allen Park Fire Department gave a helping hand, offering an aerial view with their ladder.
Teachers say it's important to fund art programs for young children.
