Today, Arcosanti gladly hosted 48 5th grade students and their teachers from the Phoenix Country Day School. The children stayed for three days packed with fun, exploration of nature and craft-workshops. Immediately after arrival, the students gathered and watched one of the bell bronze pours here at Arcosanti. The night of the same day, the 5th graders performed an exhilarating talent show on the stage of our Colly Soleri Amphitheater. The night was over after a bonfire and smores under the bright stars in the Tuscany landscaped Minds Garden.

A presentation by Cliff Hersted, an expert in the local cultural and natural history, preceded this walk.

Later, the group met with Paolo Soleri, Arcosanti’s designer. The children had a one hour question and answer session with Paolo.
