J.E.B. Stuart Middle School hosted their one-of-a-kind annual Spring Arts Festival. The festival highlighted various live presentations from visual artists and crafters. Students from all grades got their hands dirty as they sculpted pottery, painted canvases and danced along to the musical creations of the Jacksonville Symphony and the Navy's jazz and rock bands. Everyone was surprised when a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office helicopter landed on the school softball field, giving them a chance to scope out the aircraft.
Students also had the chance to watch a magic show and listen to storytellers. The excitement culminated on Friday as students took turns playing the drums, reading poetry, painting by mouth and building clay sculptures. Demonstrators displayed their pottery, glass beads, paintings and cartoons. Throughout the week, parents stopped by J.E.B. Stuart Middle to check out their students' own creations.
