"We are doing this to promote an awareness that the fine arts can be presented in different ways from visual arts to theater arts to singing and drama," art teacher Monica Feld said. "The kids are so excited about it because they are exposed to lots of different things that they wouldn't normally be exposed to."

One highlight was performers Justin and Liam, musicians and educators who brought original family songs to life. Children joined in the fun by singing and playacting to the music.

"I like it and it's fun," second-grader Ellen King said as she worked in a fashion design class. "We colored in different designs for clothes. It's fun to design all the colors and the styles."
