Bruce Walters, Western Illinois instructor and well-known area artist, features here a triptych drawing created by the students during his class. Over $1400 in artsBASICS scholarships were given to the following artsBASICS schools’ students, to increase their arts education in a variety of opportunities given by the following arts education partners.
