Very Special Arts Festival
It's that time of year again! This past Friday, Lauren Rogers Museum of Art staff, along with the LRMA Guild, the Laurel Arts League, and the Laurel Junior Auxiliary, held the annual Very Special Arts Festival. This year's festival theme was "Superhero Spectacular" and spectacular it was! The kids created their own superhero capes, masks, mini-superheroes, and self-portraits. They also had their faces painted and took pictures with life-size painted superheroes. This festival is such a great program because it is only for students in special education, a group that is often overlooked and underserved. About 200 students participated, making this year's event a great success and a whole lot of fun!
