WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Ten high school students from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts are taking their talents to an orphanage in Haiti this summer.

The school says students will collaborate on art projects with children in a Port au Prince orphanage. The musicians, dancers and visual artists are completing the 10th, 11th and 12th grades, and have studied civics, economics and government with trip leader Jonathan Milner.

Jill Lane, headmaster and dean of the high school academic program at UNCSA, says the school wants to create citizen artists who are aware of and engaged with the world around them.

The trip is financed in part by a grant from the Semans Art Fund at UNCSA, a private foundation that funds opportunities for summer study, special projects, research, and performances.
