Mark Jones is an Art Teacher/Coordinator who lives and works in Iowa City, IA, where he coordinates art events between schools and helps build curriculum for art classes.

We became interested in Mark’s work after seeing his student-made film The Robot and the Butterfly, which was shot during school hours with over 600 students ranging from K-6 grades who did everything from building the sets to moving the characters for the stop motion animation. Mark also composed the music for his students work. We wish we would have had an art teacher like Mark in elementary school and hope this video will let others see what teachers are truly capable of. We also love that most of the things he does with his classes involve nothing more than cardboard, crayons and imagination.
