Kids from area elementary schools were awarded scholarships to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. More than 250 third graders from Jones, Harper, Richardson and Stewart Elementary Schools assisted with the storyline of the feature film that will be produced during Film Camp.

The Camp will take place every afternoon from 1pm-5pm, April 13th-17th. Once completed, the movie “Pharaoh’s Favorites” will be shown to the public for the first time on Friday night, April 24th at the Farm on the big outdoor movie screen. Admission is $2 for adults and all students are free!

Movie starts at 8:30pm right after the book signing.

Book written and illustrated by 5th graders to be released during the Spring Arts Festival!

Copies of the newly released “Believe” book written and illustrated by Richardson’s 5th graders will go on sale April 24th. Proceeds from the sale of the book will fund other Arts In Education projects sponsored by Cultural Crossroads.

5th graders from Richardson Elementary school collectively wrote and illustrated the book about a one legged grasshopper named Gary.

The authors of this literary masterpiece will be on hand Friday, April 24th from 7:30pm-8:30pm to present their book and be available for a special book signing event.

This event will have a special meaning as the class reveals that their first ever book will be dedicated in memory of their classmate and fellow author, Jarred Christopher Adams. Jarred passed away March 17th.
