A Day of Discovery: Judson School Visits the L.A. Arboretum

As part of their art class, 8th graders from Judson International School visited the Los Angeles County Arboretum recently, spending the morning in the gardens painting their own watercolor interpretations of the waterfalls and flora throughout the landscape.

The Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden is a window to the world for kids growing up in an urban environment. Set on 127 acres in the City of Arcadia, the site is home to plant collections from all over the world, including many rare and endangered species. The Arboretum also houses outdoor historical landmarks representative of the major phases of California history.

Judson International School is a Christian K-8 school based in Pasadena. The school uses a hands-on approach to learning, allowing students to explore and discover their world. That means lots of field trips for every grade, every year!

Judson International School will happily provide school tours to interested families. Appointments may be made by calling (626) 398-2476. More information about the school is also available at www.JudsonSchool.org.
