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.

Dear Art Lovers/Makers/Appreciators,
The Orange County Register may be cutting the OC Varsity Arts from it’s publication unless they see a demand amongst their readership. Please take a quick minute to sign up for the Varsity Arts Newsletter tirelessly produced by Heidi Janssen (our county’s strongest ARTs cheerleader). It would be awesome for our creative students and our community if we showed as much interest and enthusiasm for the Arts as we do for our sports…
Please support the arts in Orange County by doing the following:
Please encourage all of students and parents and community members to sign up TODAY!
Calling all creative, art-making, thoughtful IHS Students and former students tag your art/photography/poetry @artfulhumansofirvinehigh to be featured!
Although summer is wonderful, Vaquero Visual Arts teachers have been preparing for the 2017-18 school year with lots of “behind the scenes” planning and activities.
In addition to creating curriculum for the new UC approved Intro to Photo Journalism course, and taking a cajillion “lookinforlight” photos, Mrs. Tucker has been steadily updating her APAH research. Among numerous places, summer travel included visits to Mesa Verde National Park (Cliff Palace & petroglyphs!), Taos Pueblo, Millicent Rogers Museum of Native American Art (Maria Martinez pottery) and a visit to the Annenberg Space for Photography.

Hopefully Ms. Lux will provide updates on her art adventures and her new addition: RUBY!
And Mrs. Perales will share Teo, travels, concerts, and Yearbook camp and AP workshops…
Ms. Phillips had a SUPER busy summer of travel, adventure and home improvements while working on the new Animation curriculum.
Mrs. Khurgel had a huge challenge with creating AP 2-D Design curriculum, Animation, and Computer Graphics… and then there’s her whole French gig… and baby Nathan to chase after!
