Recently, ceramic artwork was installed in the Visual Arts Department hallway as part of an effort to promote the Arts and beautify WHS. A ceramic project, created by Erin Riley, Class of 2012, was installed yesterday in the Art Department area. Her ceramic work is now in good company along side a group mural project painted by an Art One Class in 2000, a fantastic underwater water fountain alcove painted by KT Dodge Class of 2006, a Visual Arts sign by Corey Jones Class of 2008, and the lastest Visual Arts sign created by Nick Murphy Class of 2015. With the overwhelming numbers of creative Art students at WHS, the Visual ARts department is clearly marked.
Last week, we brought a hundred art students to downtown Wakefield for our annual holiday window painting field trip. The students were great and the paintings came out awesome! Check them out!
The Arts Collaborative of Wakefield partnered this year with Wakefield Visual Arts for Arts Night on June 11. The school portion was in the Drill Hall and the ACW portion was in the Heritage Room. This display featured work from artists 5-65 years old! Enjoy the photos from the Heritage Room.
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!
If you could not make it to the show, please enjoy the slideshow below. Think of it as a “virtual tour” through all of the pieces that were on display. Enjoy!
The Annual Downtown Holiday Window Painting field trip was a success! We had 27 businesses participate this year and the students were great. We hope you get a chance to check out the artwork on the windows downtown. Happy holidays!
