The Wakefield High School Visual Arts Department is partnering with the Albion Cultural Exchange to host First Thursday Downtown on June 1 from 6:00-8:00 pm. This event will be the last art exhibit for the 2016-2017 school year. It is very exciting to host this event that will feature artwork from juniors, sophomores and freshman 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 Arts Night which 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 cardboard sculptures, linoleum prints, paper maché figures and masks, portraits, graphic design work and ceramics.
First Thursday is a great opportunity for the public to see the great things that are happening in the Wakefield Arts Community. Hope to see you on Thursday night.
