Wethersfield High School is hosting an Arts Extravaganza Night this Wednesday, March 27th, from 6pm to 8pm in the art gallery, cafeteria, and auditorium.
The Arts Extravaganza, organized by the arts department, features different stations focusing on different aspects of the arts, including painting, drum circles, and different music performances, as well as decorating cupcakes, printmaking, bubble painting, and more!
Band and orchestra conductor Mr. Bowles says, “March is ‘arts in the schools’ month, so the arts department wanted to bring together different students from different disciplines together in one event.” Students typically don’t get a chance to explore other aspects of the arts outside of their own area(s) of study.
The Arts Extravaganza provides students and younger kids with an opportunity to explore different areas of the arts that would otherwise be overlooked or missed out on. The arts are often underrepresented, set below sports and academics. This night opens people up to many aspects of the arts, leaving little to no parts out.
The Wethersfield High School arts department encourages as many people as possible to come to the Arts Extravaganza, as it will be full of fun and educational opportunities!
