splitting three ways

When you have three teachers and a bucketful of options for a day at Brightworks, what else can you do but split up three ways and do different things?

Chane took a bunch to San Rafael to visit world-renowned woodcarver Ian Agrell at his studio. A hand carver who not only was teaching that day but also does hours upon hours of beautiful carving, Ian took precious hours out of his day to spend time with the kids and was proud to show them his work.
