Student gives proceeds from art sale to school

KeQinChen, a Rosary Academy senior, took a key part at a private art exhibit held at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda earlier this fall. 

When creating the art, Chen hoped that her work would raise public awareness on animal welfare and environmental protection. Chen’s art collection was entitled “The Sound of Nature” because she said, “animals are part of nature and all living creatures are deserved to be respected and loved.” 

Chen was recognized by community leaders for her work. In attendance were Rosary Academy principal, Sean Basford. Chen raised money from the sale of her work and donated it to nonprofits she supports, including a $2,000 check and two original paintings to her high school. 

“We are most grateful to KeQinfor sharing her talent for the benefit of so many. She is the embodiment of ‘serving the dear neighbor without distinction,’” stated the school.
