School arts festival
set for Feb. 24
The creative spirit of students in the Diocese of Oakland's elementary and high schools will have its chance to shine on the afternoon of Feb. 24, when the Lillian Black Festival of the Arts will showcase their talents.
Each school has been invited to participate. Entries were still being accepted at press time.
An art educator envisioned an event that would bring together students, teachers and families to celebrate the artistic talents in the diocesan schools. In her capacity as coordinator of curriculum for the diocesan schools, Lillian Black organized a Sunday afternoon to display artwork and offer a venue for performers. Black was the principal of Corpus Christi School until 1979, when she began her work at the diocesan level. Her inspiration created much enthusiasm for the fine arts.
Lillian Black Children's Arts Council continues to offer support to the arts in the diocese. A recent project to paint images of saints on the utility boxes near All Saints School in Hayward was funded by the council.
