H. Frank Carey High School art teachers Jessica Burgalassi and Michael Cartolano recently accompanied 16 students to St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital. The students worked with a select group of patients of varying ages and ability levels. During the visit, students set up an array of art stations, where the children were able to participate in activities such as photography, cartooning, stained glass-inspired crafts and face painting.

Senior Isabella Basso was the impetus for this partnership through her work with Kids for Kids, where she serves as a committee member. The highlight of this special day for the students was the relationships and friendships they formed with the children they met that day.
