Modesto High Wins YAM Art Show

By Joselinne Pulido, Reporter

Modesto Junior College held their annual Youth Art Month, also known as YAM Art Show, in the MJC art gallery on the 16th of March. YAM is a celebration of the visual arts for our youth. Two of our own Modesto High classmates won prizes in their own categories. Cristoval Aguirre, who is in beginning art class, won second place for his drawing of Margot Robbie, titled Margot Robbie, from the movie "Suicide Squad." Natalia Cipponeri won second place for the painting Vulnerable. Congratulations to Aguirre and Cipponeri for demonstrating what a creatively outstanding set of students Mohi has.
