Denise Barba

Since the early age of 14, Denise Barba has been an advocate in the fine arts by participating in programs such as After School Matters, Gallery 37, and Yollocalli Arts Reach. She received her Bachelors from Northeastern Illinois University in 2009 as a double major in Secondary Education and Fine Arts with an emphasis in Painting. At the moment, Ms. Barba is attending Graduate School at Northeastern through the help of a GEAR-UP sponsored grant, where she will be receiving her Masters as a Reading Specialist.
Ms. Barba is also Amundsen's After School Matters Liaison, sharing creative work opportunities with students. Recruiting teens for this work program allows for her to share the love of the fine arts as students gain the opportunity to earn a paycheck while learning how to create and perform different forms of art. Such programs provided at Amundsen High School are a Metals Work Program, The Art of Skateboards, Stand-Up Comedy with Second City, and Students for Civic Rights.
