For the first time ever, the St. Pius X Fine Art’s students are creating a festival to showcase their talents.  The festival took place at St. Pius High School on Thursday, May 28th at 5:00 pm on the lawn in the front parking lot.

The festival welcomed both friends and families of fine art’s students. It included: food trucks, dancing, arts and crafts, theater, and music.   

The art students put together booths which displayed their art from the year.

“I was most excited to experience the artistic abilities of the senior class, there is so much wonderful talent. I couldn’t wait to witness Zachary Elling’s photography booth, and I felt so fortunate to have the opportunity to watch him grow as a photographer and a person,” said Senior Madison Bowman.

Mrs. Toni Hess, the SPX Art teacher and founder of the festival, is also in charge of the Photography club.  The club has a new assignment every week. They come up with a new and innovative way to depict an object or place. Photos played a major role at the festival.

“I enjoy Photography club because I like being able to have different things that I need to go take pictures of. It helps me get out of my comfort zone and I can’t wait to show all of my photography,” said Senior Lydia Masnado.

Other than art and photography, the Art Festival featured songs from the Sarton Singers, Senior Linh Nguyen had a face painting booth, and an arts and crafts booth was put together by other students. Finally, the theater department also be showed their One Acts, written and produced by SPX students.

“I was excited for the art festival because it showcases the creative and expressive side of the St. Pius students,” said Senior Rachel Fox who is about to finish her third year of Art at SPX.

The festival was a huge hit among students, faculty, and family and friends.  The student body of St. Pius is overflowing with creativity and talent, and the fair was a great opportunity for the students to feature their abilities.
