Arts Fest 2024: Fine Arts Teachers Take on New Roles

Written by Wyatt Berry

Arlington's annual Arts Fest is here! On Friday, May 3, the junior high choir will perform Disney songs and the high school choir will perform The Greatest Showman beginning at 7PM in the auditorium. On Saturday, May 4, the 5th-6th grade bands will kick off the performance in the new gym at 7PM followed by the junior high and high school bands. Both performances are $5 per person (kindergarten and up) or $20 per family (if exceeds 4 people).   

There will also be a collective K-12 art gallery in the old gym available for viewing from 3-9PM on Friday and from 6-9PM on Saturday. This is a public showing and there is no entry fee. These art pieces will include pieces from every student and classroom of all mediums. There will also be woodworking projects from the high school industrial arts program including furniture, drafting, and CAD pieces. 

This year, Arlington teachers have taken on new and bigger roles. Mrs. White is stepping into the role of the Art teacher for the final months of school, substituting for Mrs. Inniger while she is on leave. “My role is to curate what the students have created and make a good presentation of what the students have made,” said White. “I am excited to show off the students' hard work to the community and the staff”. 

Mr. Buckholdt has taken on both band and choir this year. He says, “ I am excited for a couple of different songs, 'Never Enough' (High School Choir), 'Life is a Highway' (High School Choir), Disney Songs (JH Band), and 'The Witch and the Saint' (High School Band).” Mr. Buckholdt is expecting big things considering they have been preparing since the 3rd week of March.  

Another perspective is from the shop teacher Mr. Vent. This is Mr. Vent’s first year participating in Arts Fest. He says, “I am excited about the students' hard work being displayed. People should look for some of the cutting boards a couple of students made.”
