The Quinebaug Valley Council for the Arts and Humanities (QVCAH) and Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School (BPRVTHS) are pleased to be hosting a Winter 2013 Drawing Exhibition of the Bay Path After School Art Program made possible through Massachusetts Cultural Council Stars Residency program. Student works will be on display for an exclusive, one-evening-only opening reception and exhibit on Thursday, April 11th from 6-9 pm at the QVCAH Galleries, 111 Main Street (The Arts Center), Southbridge, MA. This free, public event will be catered by the Bay Path Culinary Arts Department and will feature Bay Path students as musical accompaniment. Diane Daily from DESE, the manager of STARS Residency Grant will be on hand to give a brief introduction to the event and the Stars Residency program. Students and artists who participated in the course, Bay Path faculty and administrators, and the QVCAH Board of Directors will also be present for the reception.
Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School and QVCAH partnered together to offer this exciting cultural opportunity to students. The first subject of the program, which spanned eight weeks, with meetings every Wednesday from 2:30-5:30 introduced sixteen students to the basic principles of drawing, including perspective, spatial relationships, light and shadow, anatomy, abstraction and the human figure. Studies focuses on exercises such as landscapes, still-life, and negative space and live modeling. Four different instructors with unique backgrounds taught the course with assistance from Bay Path’s Graphic Communications teacher Dawn Wilson: Printmaker Kathy Murray of Charlton, abstract painter David Baggarly of Southbridge, painter/printmaker Antonio Fonseca of Southbridge and painter/printmaker Monika Agnello of Southbridge. The classes culminated in a full and spirited critique of student work with all the students, Bay Path teacher Dawn Wilson, the instructors and QVCAH president Demetri Kasperson in attendance. This program was made possible through a generous grant of the Massachusetts Cultural Council through their STARS Residency Program. The After School Art Program received extensive support and organizational efforts from Bay Path’s administration and staff including: Jamie Ribaudo, Curriculum Coordinator, Dawn Wilson, Marc Anderson, English Lead Teacher and the Bay Path English Department.
