Art Festival Success (aka My Students are AMAZING!)

Let me preface by saying that I have received countless compliments this year on my students' work. Initially, I was pleased with the job security that comes along with having successful classes, but quickly I realized that the bar was being set quite high. If I don't produce equally amazing work in successive years...well these guys may have made me look good this year, but they're quickly becoming a threat! Tone it down, guys, come on; I like my job and want to keep it!
I will post more about my students' work on their blog, The Drying Rack, soon, but here's a little preview of their incredible skills. Above are 10th grade, below are 11th...

...and both of these are seniors (above and below). They just blow me away. I can't believe these guys!

Sassy Studio, there is so much here, where do I start? There's Sea World, the SD Zoo, the Wild Animal Park, the SD Children's Museum, Balboa Park, the Carlsbad Flower Fields (right by Legoland...also a cute strawberry picking stand nearby called U-Pick). Those are all big attractions, but would you like some more small scale ones?
