Students to Dress as Living Art on October 31

10.29.2014

FORT WORTH, TX—Students and staff at Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts (FWAFA) will celebrate Famous Creations Day during the school day on October 31 by dressing as characters from books or as pieces of art.

“We do Literary Character Day every year. But the addition of famous artwork as an option this year really works for our school because of our emphasis on the arts. I’m excited to see what our students and teachers come up with,” said FWAFA’s Director of Fine Arts, Stephen Madrid.

FWAFA also opens its annual Monster Art Show to coincide with the week’s festivities. This event features pairs of monsters drawn by our students. The original monster of the pair is sketched by a third grader. The second is a high school student’s rendering of the third grader’s drawing in full color with an imagined environment. The Monster Art Show opening reception is Thursday, October 30, 5-7 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display for the public Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through November 7. Attendees should plan to stay for FWAFA’s production of Godspell beginning at 7 p.m. in the theater immediately following the Monster Art Show reception. Tickets can be purchased at www.FWAFA.org/tickets.
