Alyssa Whitworth 582 Melody Lane Highland Park IL 60035 Telephone No: 847-432-7935 ART RESUME Art has always been a major part and focus of my life. I began taking classes at the Highland Park Art Center when I was in pre-school. Classes included pottery, drawing, painting and jewelry. Almost every summer, through middle school, I participated in local art camps run through the Highland Park park district and the art center. During high school I have continued my studies with AP classes through the school, a class at Columbia College, and a class at the School of the Art Institute. I intend to continue improving my skills and knowledge through my art studies at the college level. Please find a brief resume of my experiences below.
