Calling all Art students… are you bored with summer yet? Looking for something artistic to do?

Mrs Schilling has a fun project just for you. For the past two days, Visual Arts students and alumni have been working to beautify the Farmers Market shed at Hall Park. These photos show the project in progress. “It’s looking great but is not done yet. I will be there tomorrow at 8:00am with students to continue work on the project. Come down to help out. I would love to see you there.” said Mrs Schilling.

Visual and Performing Arts Day was a Success

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.
