We were able to arrange a field trip across town to the Josephine Sculpture Park.  While there, the Art 2 and Art 3 students were able to meet Melanie, tour some of the sculptures in the park as well as see the wood available for them to work with.  This was the first time the students met the artist – and she gave them sketching homework!
