A representative from Mass Art will be visiting Mrs. McKenna’s classroom (1241) on Tuesday, October 2, during D block 11:15 – to the end of G block 1:07.

 As juniors and seniors begin to think about life after high school, we want to present the many learning and career opportunities available with an Art degree.

This presentation will cover a wide variety of topics including financial aid, the portfolio development process, and careers in the arts. It also features a wide range of artwork created by students currently enrolled at MassArt. Afterward, there will be time to answer questions, and even review portfolios as time allows.

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.
