Child Artists' Tools Include Mixed Media, Maggots

Letting kids dip maggots into paint may sound merely disgusting — but there's an entomologist from U.C.-Davis who calls it art. Rebecca O'Flaherty is using the maggot art to teach respect for a larva most people associate with road-kill.

From member station KXJZ in Sacramento, Steve Milne reports.
