The Weston Ranch High School’s Visual and Performing Arts Department hosted a “Winter Evening of the Arts” last night in the school Theatre.
Doors opened for the various genres of art to be displayed from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. At 6:00 p.m., the theater classes performed in the black box theater. The band and choir combined to present from 7:00-8:30 p.m.
The top pieces of visual art will be submitted to the Manteca Unified District Art Show in the spring. Select pieces will also be forwarded to the 89th Annual Robert T. McKee Student Art Exhibition at the Haggin Museum in February.
VAPA Department Chair Bonnie Stogner said, “We were so excited to bring back WRHS’s Winter Evening of the Arts! Tonight was a great opportunity to showcase the amazing talents of our visual art and performing art students”.
Throughout the night, those in attendance had the chance to check out many different disciplines offered by Weston Ranch.
Included were the following:
Theater: Ms. Stogner’s Theatre classes performed a One-Act Play, “North Pole’s Got Talent.” The play’s premise was…”It’s just days before Christmas at Santa’s Workshop, and there’s still lots of work to be done — like getting the elves and reindeer in the proper holiday spirit with song, dance, and big belly laughs!”
Digital Photography – Students in Mr. Windschitl’s photography classes competed to earn a place in the district art show as well as other regional student art shows. Categories on display were portrait photography, still life, experimental, and photojournalism.
Band and Choir – Mr. Barron’s Band and Orchestra classes performed with Ms. Kennedy’s Concert and Show Choir classes at 7:00 p.m.
Ceramics – Jonathan Ridley’s Ceramics courses displayed the best of their work from the fall semester.
Fine Arts – The works of Ms. Nunes Intro and Advanced Art students showcased their works in a variety of mediums.
