As an artist-in-residence at Merrimack High School, Beth Ireland is introducing the basics of woodworking while also motivating teens to think beyond their creations by empowering their creative edge.
For Amber Smith, 15, that meant expressing her passion and love of traveling.
"When I graduate and go to college, I hope to leave Merrimack behind," said Smith, whose personal box has a drawing of a passport and roadway with the word 'welcome' in several different languages.
Partin, who has a great love for the outdoors, has an elaborate plan for her wooden box that includes a fish, fishing pole and fishing hook.
Carle described the box project as a way to personally drive students to self discovery. Students have also been working on building canjos, or essentially banjos made out of recycled materials.
