Vanguard Student Supports Arts in Education

Vanguard Senior's Artwork displayed in Butterflies and Friends

Butterflies & Friends is a community service project initiated by The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs four years ago. The purpose of the program is to promote school art programs by providing the much-needed funding. Since its inception, Butterflies & Friends has raised over $100,000 by auctioning of the butterflies that have been on display through Colorado Springs!

Phelan Carrasco, senior at The Vanguard School, was chosen to have his artwork on display for Butterflies & Friends. Phelan's butterfly, titled "Apogee," has been on display near Colorado College's Cornerstone Arts Center. Phelan's artwork depicts his interest in mechanics and the mixing of the natural with the mechanical.
