Learning from the past

The Christian Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) created an ancient town Friday evening inside the Orange County Convention and Expo Center on Farm to Market Road 1442. The mock town was alive and rich in the knowledge of the period of time in which the students had been studying and preparing for. Along with live musical interludes, historical dramatizations and a delicious cuisine of the times, the group had the town set up offering students, family and friends the opportunity to learn first hand what it was like living in a time where skilled trades, such as metal working and the art of making olive oil, were passed down from generation to generation.
