#OTD 11 September 1968 Cardozo HS students were creating art and learning new art techniques in the art department. Students learned design, drawing and painting, among others, and also decorated scenery for school events. The department was helmed by Mrs. Camille C. Espeut and Mrs. Sigrid Hull. They facilitated student affiliations with the Corcoran School of Art, which included classes, exhibitions and competitions.
