Saint Anastasia Parish Elementary School in Newtown Square (Delaware County) recently hosted a Fine Arts Festival. Students from five Archdiocesan elementary schools including Saint Anastasia, Saints Simon and Jude (Chester County), Saint Pius X (Delaware County), Saint Bernadette of Lourdes (Delaware County) and Saint Laurence (Delaware County) participated.
During the Fine Arts Festival students displayed artwork reflective of the Archdiocesan K-8 art curriculum. Pieces presented at the festival were created by students in two and three dimensions. Musical performances included handbells, Orff Ensemble (xylophones, world percussion instruments), bands and choirs.
This is the second year that Saint Anastasia has hosted this event. Two other Fine Arts Festivals at Saint Katharine of Siena School in Philadelphia and Saints Colman-John Neumann School (Delaware County) are taking place in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in April and May.
