WHSArt presents a First Thursday Art Exhibit at the Albion Cultural Exchange

WHSArt presents a First Thursday Art Exhibit at the Albion Cultural Exchange

The Wakefield High School Visual Arts Department is partnering with the Albion Cultural Exchange to host First Thursday Downtown on June 6 from 6:00-8:00 pm.  This event will be the last art exhibit for the 2018-2019 school year. It is very exciting to host this event featuring artwork from juniors, sophomores and freshmen art students at WHS.  The seniors have left the building and now it is time for the underclassmen to showcase their talents.

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 important to show off their most recent work,” said Joy Schilling WHSVisual Arts Coordinator.  Included in this exhibit will be linoleum prints, copper tooling, 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.
