“Let Your Art Shine” during Art Weekend

Even though we are not together on campus, we are still kicking off our annual Art Weekend virtually tomorrow! On Friday, National Slam Poetry Champion S.C. Says will host a slam poetry workshop during the Fine Arts tutorial and an Open Mic Night, jointly hosted with our Acapella and Techies clubs, starting at 7pm. Virtual exhibits will be shared on the @FXCPhotography Instagram account, with the first round featuring winners of the Science Photography Contest at the end of this week. (Act fast and cast your vote before the form closes tonight!) This year’s Senior One Woman Shows are also going live on Instagram at @FoxcroftSchoolFineArts on Friday, featuring digital and studio artworks by seniors Leslie W., Emma L., Jojo M., and Bella Z.
Foxcroft art will continue to shine throughout the month of May with exhibits of visual and performing artworks submitted by our community — submission forms can be completed online for faculty/staff and students through May 1. We will also highlight projects being produced right now during distance learning. One particular project currently in the works includes a collaborative digital collage by juniors Liliana G., Isobel D., and Teagan S. titled “Girls of Foxcroft.”

Many of these opportunities and more are featured on the new Club House page on our Virtual Student Center. By participating, students can use a number of these art activities to fill their Activities Bingo Board! On behalf of the entire Fine Arts Department, we would like to invite each and every one of you to “let your art shine” with us.
