Musical numbers were performed by elementary through high school student choir and instrumental performances. "Arts are an integral part of learning and expression, thus they are a fundamental component of our school," said Director of Marketing Catherine Mosley.

High school fine art students produced the majority of the art pieces in the show and demonstrated various techniques including multimedia, mask-making and charcoal.

The students also studied the unique art of former Lynchburg artist Greg Boyd and modeled Boyd's techniques with wonderful results.

"More accurately, the students are modeling their work after Australian aboriginal "dreamtime" painters, whose techniques I, in turn, borrowed and combined with animal figures from Paleolithic cave art," said Boyd.

Mosley said, “We are thrilled to have wonderful art and music teachers who bring our students' natural talents to light.”

The art show began in the elementary wing, wound through the main lobby and concluded in the main office. Grandparents were delighted to share the afternoon of entertainment at Holy Cross.

Holy Cross Regional Catholic School was founded in 1879 and is a fully accredited college preparatory school for students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Holy Cross students are provided a challenging learning environment, Christian values and Catholic traditions. Every year, 100 percent of Holy Cross seniors are accepted into a college or university.

Students are encouraged to engage in learning, service and citizenship at Holy Cross and to become leaders in society while sharing God's message.
