Congratulations to our Visual & Performing Artists
Upper School students Isabella G. and Alex (Amber) B. were accepted into the highly competitive Ryman Arts Program at the Otis College of Art & Design for the Spring semester! The prestigious arts program was founded in honor of artist Herbert D. Ryman who created the first overall illustration of Disneyland. The intensive, weekend-based program is meant to create access and opportunity for the next generation of artists.
Saint Monica Preparatory is well represented in this year’s Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.

Congratulations all!
