Master Classes in the Arts Set for Second Year at Seven Wake High Schools

[Raleigh, NC]—For the second year, United Arts will offer a series of master classes in the arts in area high schools. Schools that participated last year—Athens Drive High, Holly Springs High and Knightdale High—will all receive one master class this year. The schools participating in their first year—Rolesville High, Wake Forest High, East Wake High and Fuquay-Varina High—will receive two master classes.

United Arts has been sponsoring Artists in Schools programs in most of the Wake County elementary and middle schools for more than 30 years. The master classes are a way to connect with more high schools and give students an opportunity to receive hands-on instruction from a professional artist in dance, theatre, visual arts, or music.

Among the first classes, Gaspard Louis (Gaspard & Dancers) will visit Rolesville High and Wake Forest High this month.

Master classes are supported by ticket sales from Pieces of Gold, the annual student talent showcase held at Memorial Auditorium.
