Down a steep path, in the heart of Blackberry Farm, MVHS students discover a new artistic environment. Art teacher Jay Shelton brought his Art 2 class to the nearby Blackberry Farm to experience a different setting filled with an array of scenic backgrounds. Students carry their art supplies, such as paintbrushes, water cups, and drawing boards to paint different impressions with the help of nature. Watch the video to discover the inspiration behind this field trip.
