Retired art teacher Tim Collins strolled through the sea of artworks and mingled with generations of students and teachers Friday at the Casper Events Center.
He took in the nearly 4,500 pieces of art on display there for the Wyoming State High School Art Symposium, the annual showcase he started five decades ago.
“If we have an art show, will you show up?” he’d asked fellow teachers around the state.
Students from 16 schools arrived with a few hundred artworks for first Wyoming High School Art Symposium in 1968 at Laramie High School, where he taught, Collins recalled.
The Wyoming State High School Art Symposium this weekend celebrated its 50th year. Collins joined many other educators and state officials there in sharing the event’s history and growth through the decades.
This year’s symposium showcased work from more than 1,500 students around Wyoming. They participated in workshops and met college recruiters while competing for ribbons, scholarships and chances to land their artwor..
A post-secondary Victoria art school is being evicted by its landowner, the Greater Victoria School District, from a building it's called home for 14 years.
Since 2004, the Vancouver Island School of Art has leased an old elementary school from the school district. However, due to swelling enrolment, the district says it now needs the space for students.
The district's secretary-treasurer, Mark Walsh, says changes to B.C.'s class composition sizes, as well as population migration to the Island from Alberta and the Lower Mainland, have pushed enrolment well above previous projections.
"Most of our sites are starting to fill up," said Walsh. "Central Middle School actually is full, and we need to find a way to make sure we can fit all the kids in this area."
For now, that means increasing capacities at other schools like Lansdowne Middle School — which is just down the road from the Vancouver Island School of Art, also known as the Quadra street building.
"[The Quadra str..
If you can, make a visit to the campuses that interest you. While some schools hold regular open houses, tours, and information sessions, others have much more limited opportunities to experience the facilities. Look out for open houses in the fall (some, like Yale, require you to register) and public open studio days in the spring, when you can meet and see the work of current students. Both are great opportunities to better understand a program, its ethos, and its teaching methods.
Pay attention to the specific departments a school has. In many cases, schools have medium-specific departments that you will have to apply to, like painting or sculpture or ceramics. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t have the opportunity to pursue more interdisciplinary work—in many cases you can. But, if you’re torn between painting and sculpture, for example, look at the faculty and former students to help you choose one over the other (though some schools, like Yale, let you apply to two pr..

Our guide to new art shows — and some that will be closing soon.
‘TARSILA DO AMARAL: INVENTING MODERN ART IN BRAZIL’ at the Museum of Modern Art (through June 3). The subtitle is no overstatement: In the early 1920s, first in Paris and then back home in São Paulo, Brazil, this painter really did lay the groundwork for the coming of modernism in Latin America’s most populous nation. Tired of the European pretenders in Brazil’s art academies, Tarsila (who was always called by her first name) began to intermingle Western, African and..
Sometimes a dumb joke is a smart move. Last Saturday, as the city’s art
scene was bogged down by eight art fairs, “All About Frank,” a weeklong
exhibition, popped up on the second floor of a town house in Little
Italy. As its title suggests, the exhibit—a rangy group show, including works by
forty-one artists—is a free-associative riff on the syllable “frank,”
from Walter Robinson’s breezy paintings of mustard-frilled frankfurters
and Andrea Bergart’s teen-dream abstractions of Lisa Frank Trapper
Keepers to Larry Rivers’s misty-eyed portrait of..
Yannis Gounas and Konstantinos Sidiropoulos combine their two different worlds, one of which expresses the beginning and the other the evolution and continuity, at the exhibition "50 Haiku and New Age" to be hosted by the Cacoyannis Foundation since 23 February.
Two faces of the same coin. On the one hand, with the excuse of childhood memories, a world is innocent, free and harmonious through the color palette of Yannis Gounas, while on the other, Konstantinos Sidiropoulos presents the impasse of a world that is hard and rough, fraud, lack of freedom and inhumanity.
A group exhibition depicting many different views of Greece titled "Views of Greece Vol. 1" is hosted on iD ProjectArt with the participation of well-known painters such as: Yannis Adamakis, Chryssa Vergi, Erieta Vordoni, Maria Giannakaki, Giannis Kottis, Dimitris Koukos, Eleni Pavlopoulou, Pavlos Samian.
