Students show off talent at Art Fest

Student painting for Art Fest

Student work created at Art Fest will be displayed in the Ward Gallery.


Picassos from the UIC community can share their artistic skills during the UIC Art Fest.

Students of all skill levels can sign up through Friday.

Paint, a brush and a canvas will be provided for students to work on their projects from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 30 through April 3 in the Campus Program offices, 340 Student Center East. 

“Students are very excited. They think they won’t finish in a week but they end up doing so,” said Sladjana Grbic, assistant program director for Campus Programs. 

The artwork will be displayed in the Montgomery Ward Gallery, with an opening reception April 4. Viewers can vote for their favorites April 4, 4 to 6 p.m., with the top three artists winning gift cards to the UIC Bookstore. 

“It’s a great experience,” Grbic said. “They leave very confident in their skills.”
