For the past 17 years, the Fountain Valley School District has celebrated the artistic talents of students attending the district’s 10 schools.
This year’s 18th annual art show, titled “Let Art Grow,” is set for 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 10 at the school district office.
The popular show will feature displays of art by students from each school, performances by the district’s middle school vocal music program, a photo booth and several popular food trucks.
Students and their parents can check out interactive art stations, use their artistic talents at the cookie creation station and more. Additionally, the district has collaborated with Mimi’s Jewelry owner David Truong for a jewelry-designing contest.
The winning jewelry piece will be auctioned off and all proceeds will go to the Fountain Valley Schools Foundation.
The Fountain Valley School District office is at 10055 Slater Ave.
For more information, call 714-843-3291.
And while I’m on the subject of the Fountain Valley Schools Foundation, make sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, April 25.
The 17th annual Taste of Fountain Valley, a fundraiser for the foundation, is set for 5 to 9 p.m. at Los Caballeros Sports Village in Fountain Valley.
