Senior Art Students visit Josh Simpson’s Studio

A group of senior Art students had the opportunity to visit Josh Simpson’s studio, a glass artist from Shelburne Falls, last week. While at the studio, students watched the artist as he demonstrated his unique glass blowing process. They watched as a piece was created from start to finish.
