The Faculty/Student Show will celebrate the work of WWA teaching artists and their students. It is always exciting to see what everyone has been working on during the past year and all our students and teachers will get at least 1 piece of art in the show.  WWA will also recognize the achievements of all Certificate of Fine Arts (CiFA) students.  One student’s work will be selected to become part of our permanent collection at WWA.
