This upcoming weekend is the 54th annual Winter Park Art Festival.
Art teachers all chose kids to participate in the festival, teacher Nicole Moitoza is one of them. Moitoza has chosen around 20 pieces of art from Boone students. She chooses the art and usually looks for something visually interesting, technically sound, and something where their skill is evident and that shows mastery of technique.
According to Moitoza, the WPAF makes her feel successful because of all the Boone students that become involved in the festival and that get to showcase their work.
“[The WPAF] shows them art exposure. They get to see their art in different venues and other people get to view their work,” Moitoza said.
Sophomore Audrey Clack is one of the select students. Clack drew a picture of Dick Van Dyke who she considers one of her favorite actors.
Clack enjoyed working the past three weeks on this project.
“I put a lot of time into my artwork. It doesn’t even feel like work to me because it’s really fun,” Clack said.
The students’ artwork will be on display from March 21-22, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m, and on Sunday, March 23, 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. The festival estimates 350,00 people attend each year. According to Moitoza, this is a lot of exposure for the students.
