On Saturday, Upper School mothers and daughters, along with faculty and other special friends, gathered for the second annual Mother-Daughter Tea.

Graciously hosted and coordinated by Miss Clevenger, with the help of the faculty, the event was a lovely opportunity for the community to gather, partake of delicious refreshments, fellowship, and conversation.

This year the theme for the Tea was "beauty and craft.” Mothers and daughters engaged in a discussion on the role and place of beauty and how we engage in God’s creative work by craft: the making of beautiful things. Miss Leithart initiated the conversation with a brief look at how we define beauty, and then Mrs. Clevenger, an art teacher and mother to our own Miss Clevenger, lead the group in a variety of hands-on art projects.

Attendees had the opportunity to try several different watercolor techniques, making beautiful pictures, cards, and decorations. Mothers, daughters and teachers enjoyed experimenting with color and design in producing lovely works of art with their own hands.

Everyone enjoyed a lovely time of fellowship, conversation, and the opportunity to create some beautiful art to take home with them. As one of the many special programs and opportunities that help to make the unique Upper School culture at Immanuel, we look forward to continuing to grow this tradition for many years to come.
