Each year we hold a event for the visual arts at West Middle School we call the Art & Gourmet Gala.  It is a formal evening to promote, view, and sell student artwork produced at West Middle School. This year landscape watercolors displaying the beauty of Traverse City will be available both for display and purchase. Block printed cards illustrating Michigan wildflowers will also be available to view and purchase as well as other student produced items. We team up with the Family & Consumer Science Department for the gala (that’s the gourmet part), where students make and serve all the wonderful and healthy appetizers at the event. Artisanal small plates crafted by the Consumer Science department of West Middle School will available to the viewer with the purchase of admission.

Tickets may be purchased at the door so feel free to just show up, but it helps our cooks know how much food to prepare if tickets are purchased ahead of time.  Everyday proceeding the event students can purchase tickets from any art or foods teacher all day long.  Tickets cost just $1.

Thank you so much for your wonderful support and we can’t wait to see you there.

Join Us May 6, 2015 from 6-7pm for a formal evening of music, appetizers, art appreciation, and a sale of student artwork.  All the proceeds generated go equally to supporting the Visual Arts & the Family & Consumer Science Departments.
