Sacred Heart students showcase artwork
FARMINGTON — Sacred Heart Catholic School in Farmington hosted a Visual Arts Feast on April 28 at the school in Farmington.
The school’s gym was transformed into a gallery that showcased students’ artwork.
The event featured a project called "Trees for Nyaka: A Forest of Friendship." A grant from the Connie Gotsch Arts Foundation covered the cost of materials for the tree canvasses and frames for an upcoming project.
The Visual Arts Feast raised $700 from the sale of pieces created by students from kindergarten through fourth grades.
Proceeds will benefit the Nyaka AIDS Orphan Project, which helps orphans and grandmother affected by HIV and AIDS in Uganda.
Also, earlier this month, students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades showed off their work at Artifacts Gallery in Farmington,
About 80 people visited the "Symbolic Sojourns" exhibit, which also included 37 visual essays.
