August at Sky Islands

What an exciting way to kick off the 2015-2016 school year! Orientation week saw lots of exciting community-building activities, CapaCITY days saw gardens planted in the low desert while some students got to explore the cool forests of Mount Lemmon. In the first couple weeks of classes, students practiced their figure drawing in Graphic Arts class, had fun with Analog Day in Photography, started learning classical guitar in the Lead Guitar class, and the Projects Research and Design class toured Manzo Elementary to learn about their tortoise habitat as a part of writing a grant to get one here at Sky Islands. Meanwhile, Laronda, the skeleton created for the All Souls Precession a couple years ago, found a new stint scaring off herons from our koi pond!
