“The art room is a precious space where students don’t find the ‘right’ answer to a problem. They find their own unique answers and experience their peers’ endless ways to respond. Art teaches students that there is more than one way to be in this world.”

Jean Fitzgerald, Clarendon Hills Middle School Art Teacher
