Leveraging Chaos in the Afternoon

The backdrop of Columbus Circle set the stage for our afternoon adventures with enamel. It seemed the excitement of the city was echoed in the classroom with everyone jockeying for position in the queue. I think everyone was a little surprised by the actual experience of enameling, especially when a little chaos is encouraged.
