IHS Visual Arts Fundraiser

Please consider supporting Irvine High Visual Arts Teachers and the Art Club support Art education and art-making efforts via the Peace Corps in a Zulu village in South Africa. We realize there is so much need out there in the world—yet we would be grateful if you would consider supporting one of our courageous, and big-hearted former students Lexi Delahaut (IHS Class of 2010) in her teaching efforts/service in the Peace Corps currently at the Nansindlela Combined School in South Africa.
