"Aurora Central High School senior Angel Briones spent Monday demonstrating to students how to solder metal in a jewelry making class.
'As a senior, I get off periods and as much as I would like to go home, I chose to come here for the art,' Briones said.
Briones admitted he’s disappointed he won’t be here for the 2022-2023 school year when Aurora Central High School becomes the district’s first visual and performing arts magnet school.
Aurora is creating a K-12 arts pathway located at Peoria Elementary School and Aurora Central High School. Some classes will also take place at an educational services center."
