2011 garden arts fest at venice united church of christ

Our efforts to make the VUCOC/Garden Elementary Arts Fest "bigger and better" than last year came to fruition last Thursday night! This year we had the YOUNG AMERICANS (our chorus) and the Gator Band play for all of the parents. Art awards were handed out, refreshments were had, and the VUCOC was a great venue for all!
The church did a wonderful job setting up the artwork, adjudicating the artwork, and promoting the show! We couldn't have asked for a better turnout!
I put about 1/2 of the glass sculptures in the show. The rest will reside at the South County art show in a couple of weeks.
It was quite a colorful show!
The students were very proud of their work!
Everyone received a ribbon...award of Merit, award of Excellence, or Emerging Artist. While the award itself means nothing to the students, the ribbon means everything!
I think the smiles on their faces tell the whole story!
On behalf of all our Garden Gators, we thank the VUCOC for their warm hospitality in hosting our Arts Fest. See you next year!
