Published on: April 10, 2008If you're looking for an event that the whole family will enjoy, make plans to attend the upcoming Humble ISD/Lone Star College-Kingwood Fine Arts Festival.
This free interactive event will be held in the Fitness Center and Student Center/Fine Arts Buildings on the LSC-Kingwood campus, Saturday, April 26, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Stacia Gower of Humble ISD, an organizer for the event says the Fine Arts Festival initially began to showcase and celebrate the fine arts in our schools and community.
"One of the outstanding features is the sixteen, hands-on creation stations. Kids of all ages, and I mean toddler to grandparents, will work on a fun project to take home," says Gower.
Along with the creation stations, an art exhibit featuring over seven hundred pieces of art from Humble ISD elementary through high school students will be on display. The show is juried with awards for Best of Show, first, second and third places.
Musical performances by elementary schools in the district will go on throughout the day and six local authors will be reading and signing their books. A Scholastic book fair will feature reading material of interest to all ages.
"Another great aspect of this event is that it brings our community to the college campus to show how education is a continuation - it doesn't stop at twelfth grade," says Gower. "LSC-Kingwood has such outstanding art installations and this is an opportunity to showcase the beautiful campus."
The silent auction will be a big draw, featuring original pieces of art by area artists, sports memorabilia, and products and services donated by local businesses.
Gower says this is the fourth year that Lone Star College-Kingwood and Humble ISD have worked together and the festival just keeps getting better. In recognition of that outstanding partnership the Humble ISD board will recognize Dr. Linda Stegall, Rebecca Riley, Jan Schultz and Mari Omori of LSC-Kingwood with commendations for their support.
