Schools in the Chavez High School feeder pattern hosted a fine arts showcase, “A Feast of Art,” on Saturday, May 20 at Chavez High School to celebrate artistic successes achieved by students in District III during the 2016-2017 school year.
The fine arts showcase, part of a larger effort to increase arts access in the area, featured visual artwork created by students from Bellfort Early Childhood Center; Bonner, Lewis, Patterson, Park Place, and Rucker elementary schools; Ortiz and Stevenson middle schools; and Chavez High School.
Each school had their best visual art on display for the community. Park Place ES had sculptures, and Bellfort ECC provided paintings, drawings, and collages. Chavez HS even featured a live potter’s wheel. Hundreds of student-made art pieces decorated the walls and lined the aisles. Middle school drumlines performed along with dance and martial arts teams. The Chavez band closed out the show.
