Art generates more art

Program features art from every Cerra Vista School student; raises money for art materials next year

Hollister’s Cerra Vista School hosted its Second Annual Art Show, bringing in more than $1,000 for next year’s program. The June 1 exhibit featured at least one piece of art from every student in the school. More than 600 students were involved and many contributed two or three pieces of art.

Evelyn Sachau was credited as the mastermind behind the event, which was held in the Cerra Vista multi-use room. She was assisted by a large group of parent and community volunteers.

Art instructor Louise Roy taught many of the students and helped set up the event.

Several high school students created a video about the Cerra Vista students and their project assisted Vicky Martinez.

Student artwork sold for $5 per item. The popular and successful art show and fundraiser raised money to be used on art materials for next year.
