On Friday, students at Robert Harvey Elementary got to learn first-hand from over 20 artists during their first ever STEAM Art Day.

The Albany Museum of Art even brought a chalk artist who will be performing in Chalkfest next weekend.

The museum chalk artist spoke to students about how math, science, technology and engineering all go into making her art pieces.

Principal John Davis says it's all about exposing students to various forms of art, especially at a young age.

Davis adds his goal is to have a lasting partnership with the Albany Museum of Art.

"I hope that this is only the beginning, I really do. So you talk about what's sustained, our work together on the back end as professionals but, more importantly, to the students. Not only did you get a chance to see this creativity, to have a seed planted but now we can begin to learn," said Davis.

Over a dozen artists from all over the state will be present at Chalkfest next Saturday.

There will be art, face painting, live music and food trucks.

Chalkfest will be September 22nd from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m..
