During Jan. 29 Clinton High School art students, along with their teacher Carol Corning, visited the Arkansas Arts Center. The exhibit visited by Clinton students was on loan from the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, in Washington, D.C. It included drawing and portraiture in both large and small scale, some works covering entire walls. The large group was divided into three smaller groups and trained docents, from the art center were on hand to talk with students as they toured the different galleries.

The morning was still young, so after the visit everyone traveled to the River Market and viewed sculptures along the one-mile walk. The day was cool, as were the many sculptures. After the walk, the River Market District seemed the perfect place to allow everyone an opportunity to sample international foods from the Market Hall. Several parents volunteered to chaperon and everyone had a good time.
