A plein air painting workshop for advanced painting and drawing students, led by award-winning artist and studio art alum Marc Anderson, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8.
Anderson will lead a demonstration from about 10 a.m. to noon at the 9-11 Memorial in front of the Applied Arts Building. Students will paint from 1 to 4 p.m. near the same area. The community is invited to watch the artists in action.
Step by Step will feature UW-Stout students’ and alumni narrative comic work, illustrating steps of the comic-making process from doodles to a finished bound book. The exhibition will educate on the diverse processes that artists have, the labor that goes into making a finished piece and the materials and scale as they fluctuate through a single project. The show will be up for the duration of the fall semester.
Arts Alive! will feature faculty and student readings, with themes of imagination and creativity. Musical university and community groups performing are the Symphonic Singers, Chamber Choir, Jazz Embers, Devil Tones Acappella and Menomonie Singers.
The K-12 Art Exhibition will feature works by more than 20 Menomonie students, from Tuesday, Oct. 11, to Tuesday, Nov. 1. The exhibit was curated and will be judged by studio art and art education faculty, staff and students. Awards will include the Chancellor's Award and People's Choice.
