Crow museum of Asian art

South Hills High School students studying Chinese visited the Crow Museum of Asian Art in Dallas to participate in the Chinese New Year Festival. In addition to housing one of the finest collections of Chinese jades in the U.S., the Crow museum is responsible for hosting the Chinese New Year Festival complete with dancing lions and dragons and festival treats.

Young Women's Leadership Academy Spanish students attended the Arlington Museum of Art's special exhibit of Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada's iconic prints and contemporary works.  The exhibit included artworks of all types in order to demonstrate his influence on artists like Frida Kahlo as well as the Grateful Dead. 

Hispanic Heritage Month is an important occasion for our classes to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures of the Hispanic and Latino communities. It is a time to recognize the contributions of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. All levels of Spanish have units that incorporate the month-long celebration. This year's theme is "Latinos: Driving Prosperity, Power, and Progress in America." So far, I have been invited to judge a themed door decorating contest at Arlington Heights, attend an evening of music, dance, and theater at Paschal HS, do a gallery walk of the artwork at McLean MS, and attend the National Hispanic Honor Society Induction at TABS.
