Artist-in-residence Perrin Boyd (center) teaches Wadena-Deer Creek third-grade students skills they need to be good problem solvers. Students performed a variety of activities under Boyd's energetic direction and had fun learning how to work together with each other. Boyd is pictured above interacting with students in Lori Grendahl's class. Many WDC students know Boyd from her clowning residency with first-graders over the last 10 years. Boyd's time at WDC was paid for thanks to a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
