Breakthrough Students Experience Chicago

Breakthrough students are on the move! Through the London Johnson Arts and Technology Academy, students had the chance to explore Chicago through culinary arts and ceramics with fields trips to Inspiration Kitchens and the Lillstreet Art Center.

Breakthrough’s Intermediate Cooking class visited Inspiration Kitchens and heard firsthand from the culinary staff about working in a restaurant. Students were treated to food from the kitchen and recipes to take with them and try at Breakthrough. One student shared that she had never thought about culinary arts as a career path, but now it is in her top five career dreams. Inspiration Kitchens generously gave each student a gift certificate to take their family to the restaurant.

Breakthrough's ceramics program recently visited the Uptown-based Lillstreet Art Center, where they experienced one of the largest ceramics communities in the country. The ceramic students loved being part of the state-of-the-art facilities and checking out the student-created pieces.

We can’t wait to see what these students create next!
