Columbia Heights celebrates second annual Fall Art Exhibit

Young artists showcased their creative talents to parents and teachers at the second annual Columbia Heights Elementary Fall Art Exhibit on Dec. 1.

Several students expressed their creativity through live performances while others proudly pointed out their art pieces in a gallery. Visual artwork featured included pen on paper drawings of Hispanic American icons, as well as mixed media drawings of festive sugar skulls.

“The kids love to have their work exhibited and we have a really good turnout,” Columbia Heights art teacher Noe Garza said. “The parents are very supportive of their kids.”

The event also featured an interactive activity where parents and students could sit and draw items placed on their tables.

“I think a lot of times kids feed off of their parents so when they see their parents creating art, it motivates them and it reinforces the idea that they want to keep doing art,” Garza said. “I also think it helps parents create a creative bond with their kids and they feed off each other, sometimes parents need to escape from life for a little bit and just draw and create.”
