ARTS ALIVE! 2013
BRINGING THE ARTS BACK INTO OUR SCHOOLS
The ninth annual ARTS ALIVE! Artist & Artisan show will be held in April, at Carroll County Intermediate School on North Main Street in Hillsville. Twenty local artists plan to display and demonstrate their work to the general public from 3:30 pm until 6:00 pm in CCIS’s gymnasium. In 2012, artists and artisans included Amanda Boyd, needle work; Penney Klaproth woodcraft & paper craft; Evalynn Halsey, Printmaking; Crystal Gillan, Soapmaking; Jane Blevins, pastels & printmaking; Freda Cole, pottery; Charles D’Arezzo, woodcarving; Jerry Ann Hall, doll making; Paula Melton, watercolors; Billy Phelps, blacksmithing; Morris Schlesinger, woodturning; Brad Smith, woodcarving; Shirley Welch, theorem painting; and others.
During the day, Arts Alive gives CCIS students the opportunity to observe artists at work and talk one-on-one about a variety of artistic media, careers in the visual arts, or marketable hobbies. When school dismisses at 3:30, the show is open to the general public. The Community is invited to stop by and meet local artists, purchase arts and crafts, and see what is happening at the school. Admission is free.
Arts Alive! is sponsored by the CCIS Art Department and The Arts Council of the Twin Counties through funding from a US Department of Education 21st Century Community Learning Center grant.
