Earn community service and learn about the artworks and objects in Central’s collection.  I am looking to work with a team of 5-10 students to help photograph, catalogue, research and develop a database that represents the works in our school’s art collection. We will also learn how to care for and preserve the objects.  We will meet during advisory periods on Wednesdays. I am seeking students with natural curiosity, good work ethic, who are team players and have good attendance and punctuality to school. If you are interested in art, art history, Central’s history, or research projects in general – even better!  I hope to hear from you. Please find me in room 8 or email me at akeefe@philasd.org Ms. A. Keefe (9/28)
