On October 22 Us Arts & Design Irvine was pleased to host a very special Halloween event: our "Night at Hogwarts", themed after the world of Harry Potter. Students and staff dressed up as characters from the popular books / movies, and the whole school was decked out in full regalia as the mystical Hogwarts Castle –– the wizard school where Harry Potter learns magic. Teachers were dressed as the professors and other Castle staff. Here's Harry Potter (Miss Alicia), with some of the wonderful kids who attended:
