Meet Ms. Diquattro

The creative mind of a child blossoms into passion for teaching art.

Some people use art as a form of personal expression, others get lost in a dance or song as a way to escape from the stress of day-to-day life. Regardless of what it’s used for the arts play a large role in the lives of people world wide. New CHS art teacher, Demi Diquattro, would be one of those people.
