New Holiday Notecards Featuring Student Artwork!

Looking for a lovely one-of-a-kind gift for the holidays? Consider purchasing a collection of six notecards featuring original artwork from students at Downers Grove South High School. Priced at $10 for each set of six, you'll also be supporting the DGS Fine Arts program.

Notecards will be available at the Downers Grove South Holiday Concert and Art Show, Thursday, December 11, starting at 6:00 pm. 

If you can't come to the show or concert, you can still purchase directly at school. Please make your check payable to DGS FOFA (Friends of Fine Arts), stop by the Fine Arts Department office (or send your student) and ask for Glenn Williams.
