(PALM BEACH) – To discover their heritage, third grade students in Kim Lipinski’s class at Hidden Oaks Elementary School have been working with Center for Creative Education artist, Ronni Gerstel to create “The Ellis Island Effect.” In preparation for the upcoming Center for Creative Education Spring Luncheon on March 29th, the children have planned a special presentation for guests during the benefit event that will showcase what they’ve learned through
CCE programming.

“The children have been working extremely hard for the past seven weeks and are very excited to be a part of the Luncheon,” said Robert Hamon, CCE’s chief executive officer. “This project has been a success on many levels. There was excellent collaboration and commitment between the classroom teacher and the teaching artist, the music teacher was involved teaching the kids songs, along with the media specialist who assisted in the development of their journals to document each students own family history. This project is arts integration at its best, taking place in a great educational environment that starts with the principal and the classroom teacher, and it exists throughout the school creating a
multi-dimensional learning environment.”

“The Ellis Island Effect” project uses art forms such as visual and written arts, voice, drama and movement to teach the third graders lessons in social studies, language arts and creative writing. The experience has allowed students to trace their roots while recreating the turn of the century immigration experience. While creating a “living museum” of artifacts representing the era, the students made an eight-foot tall paper mache Statue of Liberty, designed “heritage dolls” to represent their own family immigration histories, were photographed in clothing representing their heritage, replicated the Ellis Island entrance in a mural – all to be used during a final presentation for friends and family to see. A special thanks to Jim and Irene Karp for providing funding for this project.

Set at a private residence in Palm Beach, CCE’s 13th annual Spring Luncheon, “Discover Your Heritage,” will feature Mrs. Gerstel’s with students and Hidden Oaks Elementary teachers and staff to infuse arts into the classroom curriculum through this project. Proceeds from the Luncheon will benefit programming and operating expenses for the Center for Creative Education.

Kenn Karakul and Talbott Maxey are co-chairs for CCE’s Spring Luncheon. Committee members include: Ashton Battle, Casey Bickett, Susan Bodnar Malloy, Paula Butler, Kelly Cushing, Susie Dwinell, Jack Elkins, Wendy Fritz, Lou Lou and Jamie Gordon, Cheryl Gowdy, Vicki Halmos, Vicki and Chris Kellogg, Connie Lacaillade, Donna Long, Blanche McCoun, Suebelle Robbins, Jeanne Rosow, Alex Snyder, Carol Anne Stiglmeier, Michele Vogel, Katherine Ward, Elizabeth Wetherell and Sharon Wiggins.

Sponsors for the Spring Luncheon include: Chase, PNC Bank, Provident Jewelers, Seaman Schepps and Weeks & Callaway.

The not-for-profit Center for Creative Education uses the arts to enrich and transform children’s educational experience. The arts are infused into classroom curriculum and after-school settings to enhance the teaching of traditional academic subjects – improving each child’s learning potential and academic performance, increasing overall enthusiasm about school and shaping more productive, responsible community members that exercise creative problem solving throughout life. CCE’s newest program, Project GROW focuses on teaching students artful and hands-on ways to have a positive and healthy body and mind. For more information about the Center for Creative Education, please call (561) 805-9927 or visit .

Tickets to CCE’s Spring Luncheon are $275 per person and sponsorship opportunities are still available. For reservations or sponsorship information, please reach Michelle Jaminet at
