Each year, Mrs. Brubaker takes the art students who participate in the on-site events for a field trip to Baylor University. The students’ schedule on Wednesday morning allowed them to visit the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center and see the different art studios and the Juried Student Art Exhibition in the Martin Museum of Art. The students also got to visit the Armstrong Browning Library and the bookstore.

Mrs. Brubaker would like to thank all her student artists for a momentous year with great results using their gifts to honor God.
