Resources & Information

YCS Art

Ypsilanti students prepare for exhibit of their artwork in Washington, D.C.

When Ypsilanti Community High School art teacher Lynne Settles received a phone call from a former student saying that the U.S. Department of Education wanted to host an exhibit of Ypsilanti Community Schools (YCS) students' art, she thought it was a joke.

While talking to DOE staff in Washington, D.C., about their Student Art Exhibit Program, the former student had suggested that the DOE feature students from the school district he'd graduated from.
