The Art of Carpentry

Some students take tests to show their knowledge, others write a paper. BSC Carpentry students build a house. Between the first day of class and the day the house goes on the market, they learn everything from concrete foundations to kitchen cabinets. This year, they also focused on collaboration. The contemporary design was a collaboration with local architecture firm Plain View Design. The resulting modern farmhouse incorporated the artistic talent of carpentry and visual art student Kelsey Skenderovic. Skenderovic designed and fired the tiles around the fireplace, working with her classmates and instructors on the installation.
