Federal grant money first awarded to Mark Keppel Elementary School in 2010 came to life Friday in the form of “Bugz,” a musical theater performance staged by kindergarten and first-grade students. The show saw the budding actors sporting insect costumes and acting out scenes from international folk tales about bugs. Keppel has maintained a strong tradition in the visual performing arts. It was bolstered two years ago when it received a share of a three-year, $7.5-million federal grant awarded to Glendale Unified, and was designated a visual and performing arts magnet.

Their stories are different. Their dreams are different. Even the media and subjects used are different. But one thing draws five local high school arts students together - they are 2005 Music Center Spotlight visual arts two-dimensional awards semifinalists. Keika Yamaguchi wanted to play with perspective and pastels when she created "Face," a self-portrait measuring approximately 18 by 24 inches. The Crescenta Valley High School senior's artwork, much bigger than the 14 other semifinalist entries, was given an honorable mention.
