Fine Arts & Career Fair Showcase 2016

The 5th annual Fine Arts and Career Fair Showcase was a HUGE success!!

March is not only Youth Art Month, but also Open House, so we filled the gym with the 8th grade career fair research projects as well as artwork from EVERY Hester Art Student.  Parents joined in the celebration of the wonderful work happening at Hester by writing fan mail cards to the students letting them know just how much they enjoyed the work.  We had students and teachers writing notes as well!  Special thanks to Faustyna K. for writing the most fan mail cards that night and celebrating her fellow students!  Adding an interactive component, we hung black paper so all visitors could add to our chalkboard mural!

I am so proud of all of the students and enjoy the opportunity to watch these students grow each year.  Not only are the arts an essential component of modern life, but 50% of careers today require some arts training.  Students are not only making art, but also problem solving, learning to persevere, working collaboratively, maintaining a studio space and communicating with one another.

Check out this video slideshow of the event:


Here's some of the photos too:
