VISUAL & TECHNICAL ARTS
Each visual arts teacher will work with their students to create their art space in the art gallery for the Carnival exhibition. Then, the entire visual arts conservatory is going to work together to create an outdoor installation art project with the theme of “Fall.” They will work on individual and group projects over the course of the day for their outdoor artwork that will be on display during Carnival.
PERFORMING ARTS CONSERVATORIES
(Cirque, Dance, Instrumental and Vocal Music, and Theatre)
Our performing arts students will start with a mixer to share their passion with artists from their sister school. Then they will work on their day of performance with a technical / share rehearsal time. Since the students are so busy, this will give them an opportunity to see what the other people in their conservatory are performing at Carnival. They will have an opportunity to work with the technical aspect of their performance and see the venue, whether formal or informal space, to be able to prepare for the performances at Carnival.
