Hello Vista Summer Program Students,
This is the last week of the summer program and while you can continue working on your coursework independently, teachers and staff will not be available to provide instructional support again until the beginning of the school year August 24th. Please communicate with your crew leader this week regarding any additional support you need to either wrap up your coursework or continue working on it independently between now and the start of the school year. If you should need urgent support between now and the start of the school year, you can call Vista at 970-249-4470, leave a message and someone will reach out to you as soon as possible.

Vista Student Spotlight
Student Spotlight: Meet James!
Hi, I'm James.
I'm 17 years old, with a passion for drawing, anime, and manga. I hope to create a manga or anime that people get excited for and look forward to.
A little weird thing about me is when I'm drawing facial expressions my own will often reflect what is being drawn!
You can see more of my work on Instagram @megajamex65. I'll see you at the next Vista Van Gogh's meeting!
