The charter school opened their doors to the Santa Clarita community to view SCVi learners’ artwork and projects. Along with viewing the exhibitions of the learner’s work, local residents had the opportunity to experience live music, food trucks, carnival games and do-it-yourself activities, according to SCVi officials.

“I was excited  for this event, ” said sixth-grade learner Chandler Kubinski. “I developed a math game called integers battleship especially for this event. I also was really excited to play the carnival games and to dunk my facilitator in the dunk tank.”

The entire charter school’s hallways and classrooms were ornately decorated with myriads of paper-maché artwork, styrofoam models and canvases with arrays of loud and rich colors.  

Learners could be seen walking throughout the classrooms and pointing to their artwork and proudly showing it to their accompanying parents.

Facilitator Elizabeth Rydell’s 10th grade class did projects ranging from substantial and meaningful topics such as dissecting the root of homelessness to designing video games to pursuing an entrepreneurship through nail design.

“It was really great working with the learners on the projects. It was a privilege to see them work so hard to see their ideas come to a finished result, “ Rydell said. “They all personally invested a part of themselves into these projects so I look forward to overseeing their projects every year. ”  

The Kids Create Art Festival featured fusion taco truck Rice Balls of Fire, a self-serve snow cone vendor Kona Ice, and Cousin’s Maine Lobster truck selling Connecticut lobster rolls and a variety of lobster oriented concoctions such as lobster tacos.  

Local musicians performed cover music of classic favorites like Oasis’s “Wonderwall” and Weezer’s “Island in the Sun.”

A distinguishing feature of the Kids Create Art Festival is that it had a young entrepreneur’s fair where learners could sell their own handmade crafts and designs to local residents.

“I started designing jewelry when I was in fourth grade,”  said seventh-grade learner Violet Sanders. Her brand name is called Nerdasaurus, which is inspired by her affinity for dinosaurs.

“Kids really learned how to take ownership of their work.  They took a huge role in making sure the classrooms were ready and making sure their artwork was beautiful,” said Jenny Williams, a kindergarten through first-grade facilitator. “They’re really proud of all of this and it makes the learners feel like they have a role in their community.”
