Fine Arts

FINE ARTS: Our recent graduate, Dariana Garcia Jimenez's artwork was chosen for the Canvas for Conservation contest, sponsored by Lincoln Park Zoo. This is through a yearly partnership we have with the zoo that focuses on endangered animals. The selected student's winning artwork is featured on zoo merchandise and is sold online. The sold products benefit the student and the zoo's conservation efforts. This year her work will be available for purchase on T-shirts, notebooks, stickers, mugs, etc. It would be great to acknowledge her and support our former and current Kelly kids. Our Studio classes are partnering with the zoo again this year with a focus on two new species.

Counseling Department
