Albany- Lamar Reese Elementary school students practice a special dance taught to them by the Darton College theater department, and after a few run-through's they are ready to put it to music.

In the next room, Lee County High School students act out snapshots of common emotions for a group of kindergartners.

The activities are part of Harvesting the Arts, Lamar Reese's fall art festival.

"This was an opportunity for them to experience maybe arts a little bit further than what we offer here in the school system," says Fine Arts Chairman George Darrisaw.

Artists from the community were invited to showcase their talent and hopefully inspire the students.

"We let children experience the different art forms that we have in our community and also give them an idea of something they might want to do one day," says Darrisaw.

According to students that goal was a success.

"When we saw pottery it made me want to go out and go buy a pottery thing and just go home and start pottery," says Larisa Bentley.

"It's helped me to show that you shouldn't be afraid to do your work. It's okay, just keep on trying again, trying again until you get it right," says Falencia Wallace.

The students also enjoyed presentations from Jim's Piano Company and the Albany State University music department and dancers.
