The public is cordially invited to attend and join in celebrating these creative minds at a reception for these talented art students at Vinings Public Library, on December 1, 2018, from 1:30 through 3:30 p.m. There will be a special performance by the Whitefield Academy Jazz band.
When asked about this inspiring exhibit, Rebecca Brown, the Fine Arts Teacher at Whitefield Academy who is overseeing the student participation, stated, "The work on display is created by 10th-12th graders at Whitefield Academy. The work consists of drawings and paintings done by students in advanced visual art classes. At Whitefield Academy, the arts faculty inspires students to create sincere and significant work while recognizing the beauty of self-expression through the arts. Believing that all students have natural artistic ability waiting to be developed, instructors encourage these young artists to discover and cultivate their God-given creativity."
The Whitefield Jazz Band is under the direction of Stacy Quiros, Whitefield Fine Arts Director, who shared, "The Band program consistently represents a department of excellence with offerings in Beginner, Marching, Concert, and Jazz Bands. Graduates have matriculated to Juilliard School of Music, Berklee, Furman, and dozens of other schools to pursue college training. One distinguishing feature of Whitefield's band philosophy is that students are encouraged and do share their gifts and talents with the community."
Nichole Knox, Vinings Library Manager, echoed the enthusiasm for this enthralling event, "Vinings Library is excited to host the special exhibit featuring student artists from Whitefield Academy. It is great when people see libraries as vibrant community spaces encouraging engagement with the creative and cultural arts communities where we serve."
SCAA President San Miller expounded upon the SCAA's stance to support our schools' student artists, "South Cobb Arts Alliance renews its commitment to student artwork and the performing arts whenever and wherever we can. Student art continues to inspire the artists in all of us. Their exhibits have become a cornerstone of our outreach to bring to the community displays by both our local artists and students. Do not miss the amazing work by these talented young people!"
