Arts Week 2024

Tihmily Li, Communications Officer
This year, Greenwood’s Arts Week ran between May 13 and 16. Arts Week showcases the many artistic talents and skills of students while also inviting the Greenwood community to partake in the arts. The week kicked off with a Greenwood Mic and continued with many fun activities such as origami, bracelet making, musical performances and improv games.

Arts Week culminated in the Arts Everywhere evening showcase where different mediums and forms of artistic expression are celebrated. On the ground floor, visitors can appreciate the art on display. While many of the pieces were made using traditional mediums, there were also sculptures, photography and digital art incorporated into the gallery.
