Hallways burst with color on bamboo brush, acrylic and watercolor paintings, chalk portraits and cartoons. Classrooms served as studios with students demonstrating their skill with ceramics and science.

Music and laughter filled the air and students and families celebrated beauty everywhere.

The middle school’s Arts Fest mantra echoed throughout the schools’ hallways and in classrooms throughout the Washington and Fred Moore campuses:

“Through the arts, our knowledge is learned and expressed. Education here is not just a lecture and test. To share, to create, to inspire, to impress – with multiple talents our students are blessed.

“Hours of fun in one evening compressed. With excellent learning through arts we’re obsessed. We hope you can find the time to invest. Please come to the AMSA Arts Fest.”
