I arrived to find the building abuzz with all kinds of activity. Students were on a break for lunch, but carpenters and others were active in the back stairwell and downstairs. Mr. Larson gave me a quick tour and explained his vision in terms of how the space would be used. "An apartment will be here, a bathroom will go over there..." The former sanctuary is where the students will be drawing and painting. All about the room there were various workstations set up displaying works-in-progress.
