Teacher Fellowship Program Student Exhibition on view through July 4, 2017 

CHICAGO, IL -- Intuit's Teacher Fellowship Program Student Exhibition showcases participants in the 2016-2017 Teacher Fellowship Program. Inspired by self-taught and outsider art, students transform found and non-traditional materials into art pieces that reflect their personal visions. 

The Teacher Fellowship Program is Intuit's award-winning professional development program for teachers from Chicago Public Schools that reaches more than 600 students across Chicago annually.  

Eighteen teachers from nine Chicago Public Schools proudly feature students participating in this year's annual exhibition, curated by Joel Javier and Melissa Smith.
