On Saturday, April 25th and Sunday, April 26th, Cosby High School hosted the Chesterfield Fine Arts Festival that showcased visual and performing arts from all 63 schools in the county. The Festival featured paintings, drawings, sculptures and other visual arts; also, three stages were set up for the Jazz bands, Improv Comedy groups, fiddlers, drummers and other performing arts.
“It was a huge success; a lot of kids that normally don’t get recognized for their artwork were praised over the weekend. We have an amazing art staff and amazing art students at our school,” Art 1 and 3D design 1 & 2 teacher Toussaint Manley said.
At the festival, the atmosphere felt very lively with the set ups of artwork from all the schools that were uplifting and colorful. People of all ages attended, which resulted in it being slightly hard to go from display to display, but it was still enjoyable regardless of that. Everyone was allowed to come since the festival was free and the community to came and examined the arts of Chesterfield County.
