At the Fine Arts Banquet on May 17, students were recognized and honored for their contributions in the music, art, drama, dance and writing programs at Asheville School.
The Asheville School Fine Arts Program offers artistic practices that foster creativity and an innovative spirit to prepare students for their future. The arts act as a pathway to explore and celebrate our diverse perspectives and talents while building respect and connection with community.
"Finding space for students to be a part of the creative process is my goal. It is powerful to see students find their own voice."
-Kathy Leiner, Chair of Fine Arts
On Thursday, May 17, the Asheville School Fine Arts Department will host the annual spring concert and student art opening. These events honor the hard work that students have dedicated to their crafts throughout the year.
Asheville School students taking visual art as their spring afternoon activity recently had the opportunity to learn new techniques from Asheville painter Dustin Spagnola. The muralist taught students about the art and history of graffiti, techniques for painting with aerosols, and about mural painting.
Each Spring, the Asheville School Fine Arts Program bands together to put on an interdisciplinary arts production that combines dance, music, writing and visual art to create a performance that features original work by students. This year, Fine Arts presents "Looking Out, Looking In," a performance that seeks to explore and celebrate diversity, community and connection.
On Thursday, March 22, join Asheville School for the opening celebration of the newest exhibition in the John M. Crawford Art Gallery, "Coalescence."
