Children in kindergarten through eighth grade are learning about Hispanic culture in art classes during the month.

Besides decorating instruments the first week, classes adorned clothing and created wall hangings in celebration of Hispanic culture.

The children are applying their creative talents in a number of projects designed to provide an opportunity for them to learn about life beyond the classroom.
