Creativity Thrives at Barker High School

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Students from Central Valley’s Barker High School went on a field trip to see “A House Divided: The Legacy of Lincoln” and “Mindful Navigation: The POA Series” art exhibits at the Chase and Kress Galleries.  I was invited to their classroom the following week to see the papier mache projects they are working on.  What a treat!  I very much enjoyed meeting these people and talking with them as they worked on their art.  I appreciate all the stories, comments and great questions they had for me.
