Arts Avengers day was the first of its kind celebration at Bak. Students and teachers wore superhero costumes in honor of DC and Marvel comics cartoonist George Perez and his wife Carol Flynn who both spent time with students.
“The reason we decided to do Arts Avengers Day is because we had the opportunity to have George Perez, a comic book author, come to our school. [Susy Diaz] from the Middle School of the Arts Foundation arranged the event,” Glen Barefoot, visual arts teacher said.
George Perez, the author and illustrator for DC and Marvel Comics has helped design titles such as “The Avengers”, “Fantastic Four”, “Superman”, “Wonder Woman”, and “Teen Titans”. During his visit, he talked about his life long career as an artist, along with its challenges and rewards.
