SAN RAMON -- Magical art pieces by students did a little magic of their own -- transforming themselves into cash for art education at Iron Horse Middle School.

On April 11, the school's art students and instructors, and parents and others turned out for a special event at the global design and architectural firm Gensle in San Ramon.

A silent auction of art by the students raised funds to go toward the school's art education program.
