If you were to come by William Ng's School tomorrow, you would see the boxes shown at left being finished. At this moment, they are nearly ready for use. But as Otto Salomon said, the value of the carpenter's work lies in the usefulness of the object. The value of the student's work is within the student. It is seen, understood and expressed as growing confidence and competence. So if you show up tomorrow, you won't just see boxes. You will see confident students ready to take what they have learned and express it through their own skill and artistic vision in Portland, Phoenix, LA and other places throughout California. Not a bad week.
