We had a busy summer with the Kids Summer Art Camp and the “Afternoon of Tea and Antiques”! Now, it is on to fun fall activities!
WSAC sponsored a booth at the Bear City celebration in downtown Willow Springs on Saturday, October 3rd! Lots of kids stopped by for a balloon animal and to learn more about our upcoming events!
Our Third Annual Sponsorship Campaign began in October. This is the Arts Council’s annual fund raising event to raise funds for our varied activities supporting the fine arts in our community. To kick-off this campaign we had Regina Willard exhibit with us at the Ferguson Building! Regina’s exhibit entitled “Down on the Farm” was very well received. We introduced the exhibit on October 16th from 6PM to 8PM and celebrated our sponsors as we kicked-off our fundraising campaign.
Then on Saturday, October 24th, we hosted our first oil painting workshop with Ms. Willard. It was attended by 17 painters who enjoyed an afternoon of great instruction and fun!
Look out!!! It’s almost here!!! Spooktacula III will be presented on October 31st, HALLOWEEN at the Star Theater. This will be a fun way to wind down after Trick or Treating!!!
And, don’t forget to stop by and see the fabulous Gourd and Mask exhibit at the Ferguson from 5 to 7PM before the concert! You’ve never seen gourds like this!!!
