On March 9, the Crown Point Elementary School arts department held a cultural arts night that included a huge display of artwork from students, including performances from Crown Point’s drum ensemble led by Khemya MitRahina, the Cathedral Arts dance group, and the Springfield Middle School cheer team. The artwork from Deborah Bickle and Adam Hill’s classes were inspired by traditional cultural styles from all around the world. There were several stations where the students created their own beautiful art pieces, such as Ukrainian eggs, Chinese fans, Guatemalan Quetzal, African necklaces and more. Food trucks were on site for families to purchase dinner to eat in the courtyard area. It was a great night for our students and their families to enjoy learning and celebrating different cultures.
