The Theodore Judah Art & Music Festival, which showcases the school’s prestigious art, drama and music programs, is scheduled for Thursday, March 19, 5:30 p.m., at Kit Carson Middle School, 5301 N Street in Sacramento. This event is free and open to the public.
This annual fundraiser presents artwork created by the students auctioned off by a live auctioneer. There are also individual student-created pieces for sale. The festival is fun and spirited as parents try to outbid one another for these interesting and memorable pieces of art.
This year, the fundraiser is expected to generate $12,000, which will fund working artists that will host technical workshops in the classrooms this fall, as well as writing workshops for the older students. Monies also provide bulletin boards hung around the school’s campus, which showcases students’ ongoing art projects.
