This past Saturday at Theatre Action Project’s 5th annual Youth Arts Festival, our middle and high school students got to share their work from the year in front of family and friends. From drawings, to theatrical performances to movies, these students showed us their many talents.
Ojeda Middle School created “Alebrijes”, which are 3-Dimensional wood carvings the Zapotec Indians of the Oaxacan Valley of Mexico. But instead of wood, these students created paper-mache and then painted intricate designs on their sculptures.
Ojeda Middle School also created a short film via light box animation titled So We All May Live, which taught the theme of saving the ecosystem.
This past year, Ojeda Middle School lost a dear friend named Luis Lopez Flores. The students got together to honor him by creating one thousand paper cranes to bring peace to him and the community. They also made this film, 1000 Cranes for Luis as a tribute to their lost friend.
