Zamorano Hosts Another Successful Celebration of Art

Zamorano Fine Arts Academy hosted its annual Celebration of Art on Wednesday, June 27, 2012. The evening event was a huge success. It was a packed house all night long. Student art filled the auditorium and the windows, doors, and display panels of the campus. Every student had a piece somewhere on campus.

The school’s music instructors kicked-off the event with performances by the band and orchestra students. After the performances students along with their families and friends were free to explore the rich diversity of art produced by the students this year. All of the school’s creative classroom teachers led a wide variety of art activities for all ages. Activities included torn paper monsters, scratch art, origami, painting like Jackson Pollack, drawing like Picasso, bubble art and more.

The atmosphere was full of smiling faces all evening as proud students, parents, and family members were present enjoying the event. Zamorano students work hard in art classes all year, and it is fulfilling to put on such a high caliber exhibit every year to showcase their talents. The event was also a successful fundraiser for Zamorano with raffle baskets put together by the different grade levels, art work for sale, a cake walk, and cookie decorating.The proceeds will go to the school's Parent Teacher Foundation to benefit it “Keep the Arts Alive at Zamorano" program.

Special thanks go out to everyone who made the event a success- the art team, classroom teachers, parents, administration, volunteers, custodial staff, and of the course the students! Click here see photos from the event. For more information, contact Carlos Ramirez at or 619-267-8007 x2122 or visit
