Thursday May 30th at 6:30 pm, family, friends, and others gather outside the PAC and admire the work of this quarters Ceramics 2 classes. This year the goal was to raise $1,000.00 for VSA, and we broke that record! Over $1,000 was raised and benefited VSA that night. VSA Minnesota, founded in 1986, is an affiliate of VSA in Washington D.C. which was founded in 1974 by Jean Kennedy Smith. VSA Minnesota is a non-profit agency that provides programs and services that make the arts available and accessible to Minnesota people with disabilities.
Along with the Silent auction that night was also the Art’s Magnet Capstone and Finale. The students of Art’s Magnet presented their Senior Capstone project which has been thought upon since they joined, and worked on all this year. Set up in Mrs. Jackson’s and Mr. Gunderson’s room were other pieces created by all art students this year. Classes that day were spent setting up for this display of student work. After, all the Choir students had their last concert of the year inside the PAC.
“I was really happy with the outcome.” said senior Kassie Nisbet. “Someone even offered to buy some of my artwork. I sold 2 pieces for $20. ” For Kassie’s senior Capstone project, she created a series of ceramics pieces to put on display.
With the year coming to an end, all the Senior’s, Choir students, and Art students had this night to show off all their hard work from the year. All expectation’s were met upon this wonderful night.
