Art Club Goes to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston

Early Saturday morning we loaded up twenty-six 3-5th graders onto a bus to go into Houston to the Fine Arts Museum! I grabbed two of the art room’s iPads and we had student photographers to document the whole trip!

We walked through the sculpture garden:
