CYPRESS TEXAS — As the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District prepares to host its Spring Art Exhibit, one of the largest of its kind in Texas, the artistic work of a Cypress Springs High School student is already standing out.

An eye-catching design by Damaris Haro, a junior at Cypress Springs High School, has been selected to appear on fliers, invitations and other collateral designed to promote the annual exhibit of more than 2,500 works of art by Cy-Fair ISD students from kindergarten thru 12th grade.

This year’s Cy-Fair ISD Spring Art Exhibit, themed “Artists in Bloom,” will be held Wednesday, April 17 from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at the Berry Center, 8877 Barker Cypress Road.  The exhibit is free and open to the public.

“I was inspired by the theme,” says Damaris. “To me, ‘Artists in Bloom’ captures how students are like flowers; we are still blossoming into our craft, and that is where I came up with the idea of petals and spring like colors. There is still much to learn and this design and the meaning behind it captures how I, like the other student artists, are still growing into a flower.”

“Since art is offered in all Cy-Fair ISD elementary schools, many of our students have been honing their skills since a very early age,” adds Cypress Springs High School Principal Dr. Cheryl Henry.  “It certainly shows in their dedication to art when they come to Cypress Springs.”

The theme references the growth, knowledge and skills a Cy-Fair ISD art student attains as they approach the end of the school year, adds Henry.

Part of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District, Cypress Springs High School offers on-level, accelerated and Advancement Placement courses in English, Math, Science, Foreign Language, Social Studies and Computer Science.

Students also earn Distinguished Achievement in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), Business & Industry, Public Services, Arts & Humanities and Multidisciplinary Studies.
