The May 29 visit of fifty-six students from the Borrego Springs Elementary, Middle and High schools to the Palm Springs Art Museum was a delightful event. The students were very excited and well-behaved. They spent some of their time in a private workshop with museum volunteers, who were very impressed with the students' knowledge of the elements of art.

Their art teachers, Leslie Duncan and Ellen Dickman, have instructed them how to look at art and study what artists do to create their works. Lunch followed at a local restaurant.

The Borrego Springs Art Guild, through its scholarship program, underwrote a majority of the transportation and luncheon expenses. Barbara Williams, Art Guild secretary and one of the nine chaperones who accompanied the group commented, "The children were wonderful ambassadors of their school district and very worth of praise!"
