Picture “Art Day: Saturday in the Park” as pointillist painter Seurat’s “A Sunday Afternoon” re-imagined by local artists and Cave Creek Unified School District students and faculty!

The 2nd Annual Education & Community Services (ECS) Art Day is an Art-Tastic Day of art, music, dance, theater, storytelling, shopping and food at the Cactus Shadows Fine Arts Center on Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

“Art Day is a fun way for our students, teachers and artists to showcase the visual and performing arts within the Cave Creek Unified School District (CCUSD),” said event organizer Elaine Adrian, ECS Specialist. “It is also a way of raising money for the arts. Proceeds go to participating school clubs with a portion going to the Fine Arts Center Refurbishing Fund.”

There will be art exhibits by CSHS Alumni, CCUSD teachers and staff, which provide an opportunity to enjoy and purchase some really good arts and crafts by professional artists. A variety of interesting activities created by school clubs will keep the kids busy and happy, and there will be entertainment and food booths. 

“The Honors Clubs for Dance, Drama and Art are working on fun art-related activities to raise money for their clubs and get required community service hours,” said Adrian, “and we hope students, parents and the community will come out to demonstrate their support of what our kids are doing.”

“Horseshoe Trails’ Musicfest Strummers will perform. Works and art by the winners of the Children’s Book writing contest from all five ECS Kid’s Clubs will be exhibited.

A special attraction – one of the esteemed school principals will read a classic children’s book while the other principals act it out. (This is always wilder than it sounds.)
