It’s a Jungle Out There: Fine Arts Festival 2009

On May 9, the School of Education will present its annual Fine Arts Festival, which gives center stage to area school children and offers a chance for all ages to collaborate on a creative work.

This year’s event, produced and directed once again by Robin Wright Fromherz, professor at the School of Education, will feature Dallas School District’s rendering of the classic, The Jungle Book. The play will include performances by students of all ages and class levels on one stage.

The Fine Arts Festival was preceded yesterday by a field trip to Willamette’s campus, where students took a campus tour, made t-shirts and checked out the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.
