INTRODUCING… THE 4-H FINE ARTS FESTIVAL, COMMUNICATION, MUSIC & DRAMA
Saturday, April 4, 2020
On Saturday, April 4, 2020, the 4-H Fine Arts Festival will be held at Sheboygan Falls High School. This new event will combine the Communication Arts Festival and the Music & Drama Festival into one day of creativity and fun.
The results of our recent survey showed that respondents found both festivals to be beneficial to the participating youth and wanted them to continue.
The 4-H Fine Arts Festival will conclude with a joint ceremony to recognize excellence in art and the 4-H youth that participated.
The Music & Drama portion will continue to have club musicals and skits, solos & duets and the 4-H Concert Band. Judges will meet with the performers and offer their feedback following each performance.
The Communication Arts portion will have face to face judging similar to the Sheboygan County Fair. 4-Hers will bring their art the day of and we will utilize judging assistants to help things run smoothly. Categories of Communication Arts include creative writing, photography, speeches & demonstrations, painting, drawing, computer graphics, song composition and 3-D art. Creative writing entries will still need to be submitted a few weeks prior to the event to be judged.
In addition to the April 4 Festival, there will be workshops offered in January, February & March 2020 to help clubs and individuals prepare their art. Initial plans include a workshop on how to write a script for a club performance and on how to create costumes or sets on a shoestring budget. The third will be focused on the visual arts.
Your assistance in planning and executing the details of this new exciting event are needed! You can put your talents to work in the following areas:
1. Fine Arts Festival committee – help us finalize the plans for the big event and the workshops; help create an incentive program to encourage participation; obtain judges; make the schedule for the day;
2. Publicity – help spread the word about the Fine Arts Festival in the Crier, in person and on social media; or
