Sometimes, if you're very lucky, life turns out even better than you expected. When that happens, it's kind of magical. Friends, last night's Celebration of the Arts was nothing short of *magical*. There were artists and dancers and singers and muscians and culinary artists. It was so incredible to see all of the different talent on display. I love, love, loved watching all the peformances and seeing young artists showing off their lovely creations. The kids were all so excited. The whole night just felt happy, and it doesn't get much better than that.
The gym was filled with art from several different categories, including painting & drawing, recycled art (art made from recycled materials), 3D sculpture and photography. Here are just a few of my favorites:
This young lady was GORGEOUS and her dance was unbelievably lovely:
And throughout the school, my completely fabulous committee members passed out programs, introduced artists, and kept the food tables filled.
I've worked on a whole lot of good committees, but I don't think I've ever enjoyed working with a group of women as much as I enjoyed these ladies. We couldn't have done it without every single one of them!
What started as a little idea thrown out at a PTA meeting a couple of years ago turned into last night's magic. I love when that happens!
Hooray for celebrating ART!
