Art Exhibit featuring artists from the WHS Visual Arts Department June 7, 2018
The Wakefield High School Visual Arts Department is partnering with the Albion Cultural Exchange to host First Thursday Downtown on June 7 from 6:00-8:00 pm. This event will be the last art exhibit for the 2017-2018 school year and will feature artwork from juniors, sophomores and freshman art students at WHS. The projects for this upcoming show have been created in the past 6 weeks since Visual Arts Night that was in April.
“Art students are constantly creating and it is very exciting to be able to show off their most recent work,” said Joy Schilling WHSVisual Arts Coordinator. Included in this exhibit will be linoleum prints, paper maché masks, portraits, graphic design work and ceramics.
First Thursday is a perfect opportunity for the public to see the great things that are happening in the Wakefield Arts Community. Hope to see you on Thursday Night.
April 24, 2018 was a great night in Wakefield for the Visual Arts. At the Americal Civic Center, the Wakefield Visual Arts Department hosted a k-12 exhibit in the Drill Hall and the Arts Collaborative of Wakefield exhibited in the Heritage Room. Hundreds of people came out to view the artwork from artists age 5-65.
Multimedia Presentation students had the task of creating their houses in a three-dimensional environment. After sketching every angle of their house, students were then able to add incredible detail to help shape their design in the 3d world. From windows to doorknobs, students worked hard adding appropriate colors, textures and detail to their final designs. Artists: Gabriel Sanders, Christopher Beaudoin and Kevin O’Neil
