The Pulaski Technical College Division of Fine Arts and Humanities invites you to the inaugural Pulaski Technical College Fine Arts Festival on Thursday, April 30, from 6 until 8:30 p.m. at "Studio 153" (Admin Building - RM 153 / the former small engine repair area).
The Fine Arts Festival will showcase theatre performances drawn from three acting classes, taught by Sheila Glasscock and April Gentry-Sutterfield. Scenes will include selections from works by August Wilson, Alice Walker, Maya Angelou, Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe, Moliere, John Steinbeck and William Shakespeare.
After the theatre performances, students from guitar classes taught by Fred Williams will perform, followed by "cool jazz" from music instructor Barry McVinney. Opportunities for improvisation will be extended to various other musicians. Also, an "open mic" will be available for reciting poetry.
Studio art instructor Maribeth Anders will lead "a paint party" in which visitors to the Fine Arts Festival can create their own painting and take it home with them.
Artwork by students from the various studio art classes will be displayed throughout the space, as well as photographs from the digital photography classes taught by English and journalism instructor Allen Loibner and by professional photographer, Jay Adkins of Memphis, Tenn.
The classroom and performances spaces - Administration Building 153 a, b, c, d - have been converted from small engine repair into an art studio where Drawing I, Drawing II, 2-D Design and 3-D Design are taught. The space is also used as a black box theatre where acting and The Theatre Experience are taught, and an open, multipurpose classroom where other fine arts classes will be taught.
A final space is currently being considered for conversion into a digital video and photography studio.
