Celebration of Art 2012

We hosted our annual Celebration of Art last night at school. The event was a huge success! It was a packed house all night long.

Student art filled the auditorium and the windows, doors, and display panels of our south campus. All students had a piece somewhere on campus.

Our music instructors kicked the event off with fantastic performances by the band and orchestra students in the front of the school. After that students, families, and friends were free to explore the rich diversity of art produced by our kids this year.

Our creative classroom teachers led a wide variety of art activities for all ages. Things like torn paper monsters, scratch art, origami, painting like Jackson Pollack, drawing like Picasso, and bubble art. There were more than that, but you get the idea:)

I saw a lot of smiling faces all night long.  Many proud students, parents, and family members. Our students do a great job in art class all year long, and it is very fulfilling to put on such a high caliber exhibit every year to showcase their hard work.

It was also a successful fundraiser for us, as there were amazing raffle baskets put together by the different grade levels, art work for sale, a cake walk, and cookie decorating. The proceeds from these events will go to our PTF so they may continue to Keep the Arts Alive at Zamorano.

Thanks goes out to everyone who made the event a success- our art team, our classroom teachers, our PTF, our administration, our volunteers, our custodial staff, and our students! Cheers to all of you! I'm looking forward to next year already:)

Below is a taste of what we do.


  1. BRAVO!! This has got to be one of the best art shows I have ever seen!!

  2. What an impressive show! Sounds like an amazing event and fundraiser. I'm particularly loving those masks!

  3. blogger was not letting me leave a comment on your new post about the 5th grade mural... so anyway, wow! what an awesome mural. i am sometimes not a fan of murals but yours are really nice. i am sure the kids are proud!

  4. Thank you for sharing all the photos of your art show. I feel your art quality has been enhanced by the careful way it has been displayed. I like the plinths for 3D work. And I especially love the masks.
