For the past three years, Raven Jones has been part of the UICA family. Since she started in our ArtWorks Youth Program in 2008, she has participated in four ArtWorks projects. During these projects she showcased her beaded works at an art exhibition in the Kindell Furniture warehouse, designed an ArtPrize store display, created ArtPrize T-Shirt designs, and helped create a mural at UICA's new building location. After completing ArtWorks, Raven continued her involvement with UICA by volunteering at the Front Desk on a weekly basis and was hired to help with an ArtWorks project in 2010 assisting artist Shelly Klein. When UICA staff heard that Raven was awarded a Portfolio Scholarship by Kendall College of Art and Design we were proud of her accomplishment! "Raven's portfolio review demonstrated a high passion and talent indicating her future success in Kendall’s Fashion Program," said Sandy Britton - Director of Enrollment Management. This upcoming semester, Raven will start her Bachelor’s degree in fashion studies at Kendall College of Art and Design and when she graduates she would like to develop her own clothing line and store.

“UICA and their ArtWorks Program have been the most important part of my personal and artistic growth in the past three years.” -Raven Jones
