e-Connections Post

More than 1,750 student artists from 32 SCUSD schools attended the 27th annual Very Special Arts Festival on Friday, May 17, at Coloma Community Center — a record turnout for the event.

Every child attending the festival either had artwork on display or was part of a performance and had studied with a professional teaching artist throughout the semester via the “I Can Do It” program.

Additionally, more than 30 imaginative “Funshops” (hands-on workshops in the arts led by community artists) were available for children and adults.
