Community invited for fun at annual Fine Arts Festival

Community invited for fun at annual Fine Arts Festival
The community is invited to the 14th annual Fine Arts Festival on April 30 at LSC-Kingwood.

Humble Independent School District’s Elementary Fine Arts Department and Lone Star College-Kingwood will sponsor the 14th annual Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the college.

“The Fine Arts Festival is a venue that showcases the creative abilities of Humble ISD and LSC-Kingwood students through musical and dance performances and visual art displays,” said Stacia Gower, Humble ISD visual art coordinator. “It is also a venue/event that encourages families in Humble, Kingwood and surrounding communities to have fun as they participate in creative activities.”

The festival is free and open to the community. One of the main features is the exhibition of art work by elementary, middle, high school and college students. In the college’s Student Conference Center (SCC), community members can view Humble ISD’s Visual Art Year End Competition. As they move around the campus, LSC-Kingwood’s Student Graphic Design and Interior Design Show will be on display in the Fine Arts Gallery located in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) through April 30.

“The incorporation of visual and performing arts allows people to see and hear all of the talent that we have within the local community in a family-friendly environment,” said Angie Spargur, special events coordinator at LSC-Kingwood. “This festival also gives visitors an opportunity to visit our beautiful campus.”

All art work will be judged and awards will be given to students in elementary through high school including Best of Show and People’s Choice, an award given based on the votes of community members attending the festival. On the college level, the annual Student Graphic Design and Interior Show is also independently judged and awards are given to the first, second, third, honorable mention best of show winners.

The festival also offers a wide-variety of performing arts activities for community members to enjoy. The Kingwood Park High School dance department offers opportunities for everyone to take part in a mini-dance workshops. Participants will experience some dance techniques, learn a few steps and watch as LSC-Kingwood students demonstrate their dance talent. In addition, elementary school students will perform a choir and ensemble music all day in four different venues. Creation Stations will allow children of all ages to create take-home art at 15 different booths.

There is also a silent auction that will help sustain funds for next year’s event. The auction features sports memorabilia, original art, gift baskets, services and gift items donated by local businesses and organizations.

The Humble ISD’s Elementary Art Department’s vision started the Fine Arts Festival 14 years ago. With the event’s fast growth, the school district entered into a partnership with LSC-Kingwood. The attendance averages between 4,000 and 5,000 people. For more information or to volunteer at the Fine Arts Festival, contact Angie Spargur at 281-312-1709.
