2014-2015 Senior High Art Showcase
This particular event blew the minds of attendees in a couple of ways! Not only was the event's agenda a huge fine arts variety and very entertaining, but to see the talent of our students and to learn of their accomplishments, awards, and scholarships was pride-inducing! Here are just some highlights, all performed and exhibited by our CCS students:
- full catered and served-by-students Italian meal
- piano and voice solo entertainment
- senior art displays around the entire venue, including paintings, drawings, photography, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture...
- Aurasma app technology on Ipads allowed patrons to hold Ipad up to a student's art piece and a video of that student would pop up on the screen to describe their piece.
- full fashion show, complete with runway
- poetry readings, including a set-to-music rap
Mrs. Ashford gave awards and shared each student's accomplishments, scholarships and any art-related college plans. Special thank you to Senior, Alyssa Washington, who organized the event. Mrs. Ashford said of her students, "If you would have told me when I started how far our art program would go, I would have said you were crazy." Our Art Department's programs are a force to be reckoned with; such talent! We are so inspired and proud! Well done, students!
