Students give creative expression to the idea of light.

Arts Day

Arts Day 2020: Light

Arts Day at Dock Mennonite Academy's Grades 9-12 Campus is a day to celebrate our students’ God-given talents and abilities. We want to recognize and share the gifts God has given to celebrate the arts and give students the opportunity to perform on stage, to demonstrate technical skill and creativity with excellence.

The theme for Arts Day 2020 is “LIGHT.” Where do we see light in the world, in our lives, in our relationships, in our God? Students will perform in stage events and create entries in culinary, creative writing, fabric arts, photography, visual arts, and technology that express their understanding of light.
