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.
Photography students learn the basic principles, techniques, and processes of black & white film photography. Students learn the fundamentals of working with manual, 35mm cameras to shoot a variety of subject matter while addressing the elements and principles of design. Students learn the processes of developing film and then printing images in the darkroom.
On April 15, 2015 the WHS Visual and Performing Art students presented their talents to grades 1-8 during Visual and Performing Arts Day. VPAD is an annual event when students from middle and elementary school get to see the many courses and activities waiting for them in high school. WHS students were pleased to show off their hard work, display their talent and entertain everyone with their creativity and originality.
VPAD reinforces the positive impact art has on your life and the world you live in.
Thank you to everyone that came out to see Visual Arts Night and all of the students, faculty and staff that supported us through a day and a half of Visual & Performing Arts Days. We had so much fun and the show was better than ever!
