What can I say that has not been said already? WOW! The annual For the Love of The Arts showcase took place on Monday April 14. Students in Grades 9-12 involved in the Arts Programs at Westwood Collegiate that include Band, Choral, Dance, Drama, Graphic Technology, and Visual Arts had an opportunity to exhibit their artistic prowess in this fast paced variety show. The theme of the show, Pop Goes The Arts, was based on Pop Art movement of the nineteen-sixties. The decorations featured Westwood Arts teachers large size posters and silk screened images on bright primary colours in Andy Warhol style. Once again the audience was under the spell of expressive choral songs and dances followed by hilarious drama skits and groovy music withe 1011 Concert Band playing some very cool and psychedelic music. The Visual Arts and Graphic Technology students displayed their works in the main lobby before the show and during the intermission. The Westwood Collegiate Arts Advisory Group hosting the event provided light refreshments and arranged for the centerpiece building contest that proved to be challenging and entertaining. All performers and Arts teachers joined in the dance on stage to the final tune of groovy Soul Bossa Nova as played by the Sr. Jazz.
