West Windsor Arts Council Faculty Student Show

“CUT FROM MY PSYCHE”: This work by Ilene Dube is featured in the West Windsor Arts Council’s “Faculty Student Art Show,” which can be viewed online June 5 through July 12. 

The “Faculty Student Art Show” at West Windsor Arts Council (WWAC) will celebrate the work of teaching artists and their students created in a class or workshop at WWAC during the fall, winter, or spring sessions of the 2019-2020 class year. 

The online exhibition will run from June 5 to July 12, with an online opening reception and recognition of Certificate of Fine Arts (CiFA) students on Friday, June 5 at 7:15 p.m. This is a free event, but registration is required.  A link for registration can be found at westwindsorarts.org.

Each year WWAC honors its teaching artists and the work done by their students, both youth and adults, by showcasing their work in a culminating exhibition, “the Faculty Student Art Show.” This year is extra special, as it is the first year many of the youth students are part of the Certificate of Fine Arts (CiFA) program, which has become the backbone to the arts education classes offered at WWAC. 

The students in the CiFA classes have shown growth over the course of the year, which can be seen in their artwork.  Through sequential learning and skill building, students select the Visual Arts or Performing Arts CiFA track and make a commitment to achievement in the arts. Students in these classes have progressed through foundational classes in their chosen track and are ready to advance to the upper levels of achievement. 

“I congratulate all our students for their achievement this past year and look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall!” said Kirsten Sanford, education manager.

West Windsor Arts Council has announced that the following students have completed its Foundation 1 program towards their Certificate in Fine Arts: Allegra Alexander, Aakarsha Ardey, Katie Blair, Natalie Braynor, Srinya Gottipati, Matthew David Mehno, Sebastian Monti, Annabelle Nguyen, Victoria Rafikova, and Maya Shue.

West Windsor Arts Council is also committed to offering engaging classes for adults.  Their professional faculty are accomplished in their fields and uphold the highest integrity in their work. With small class sizes there is plenty of one-on-one instruction, allowing for a personalized approach to help students achieve their learning goals. WWAC values learners as creative, innovative individuals, who benefit from work in the arts no matter what their challenges, goals, or life’s work.
