Student Art and Music Will Star in Winter Fine Arts Festival

October 19, 2018

Wayne Community College is planning its grandest Winter Fine Arts Festival ever.

Set for the evening of Thursday, Dec. 6, the event will begin with an art exhibition that opens at 5:30 p.m. in the Wayne Learning Center Atrium.

Musical entertainment will be provided by fine arts students while guests peruse more than 110 drawings, paintings, and sculptures produced throughout the semester by students in the college’s Drawing 1, Drawing 2, Painting 1, Painting 2, and Design classes.

A variety show of performances by the college’s chorus and student talent, and community dance troupes will start at 7 p.m. in Moffatt Auditorium in the Wayne Learning Center. Music Instructor Brad Collier expects Music Appreciation students’ renditions of Christmas songs performed on Boomwhackers® musical tubes and other percussion instruments to be audience pleasers.

Prints of student art will be on sale during the event at prices starting at $25. All proceeds go the Foundation of Wayne Community College for scholarships.

A drawing will be held during the festival for three prints of original works by WCC students, and a wreath designed by the Art Instructor Angie Waller. The proceeds of that venture will offset students’ cost for a trip to Spain scheduled for spring 2019.

The festival is free and open to the public.
