It was a cold Friday night celebrating Day of the Dead in Moreno Valley but Ms Zink and her Art Club members of Canyon Springs High School warmed our hearts with their amazing story on the latest IE Scenes! @canyoncougarsmoval
Did you Know?
Each year The Moreno Valley Parks and Community Services Department host's a Day of the Dead Event? Not only is it a great time for families it is also completely free! What we love here at the Amaya Group are great performances, delicious food & experiencing great cultural. Needless to say the Moreno Valley Day of the Dead Event had it all! This family friendly event was held at the Conference and Recreation Center located at 14075 Frederick Street.
"Thank you so much for showcasing what we do with the amazing video! Also, thank you for the generous donation. It was such a surprise that it's something my students and I will never forget! I will share with everyone I know."
Who Are Ms Zink and the Canyon Springs Art Club?
Elvira Zink is a Visual Arts Teacher and head of the Canyon Springs Art club. She started it 4 years ago when a student came to her looking to start a club to give students a new opportunity to express their creativity. Elvira embraced the idea on the condition that the club be a place of productive creative expression and "not just another group that hangs around". With that they have grown to roughly 20 members of students who get to participate in a variety of activities. They also go to many local events with their face painting booth in order to raise money for Club activities such as Universal Studios and Medieval Times. Many have never had the opportunity to experience activities like this and the students are happy to earn money using their creative skills.
