H.J. Cody benefit showcases the students Art and Soul

The Art and Soul show will be held on May 26

The H.J. Cody Fine Arts Department is hosting the Annual Art & Soul Benefit on Saturday May 26 at 7 p.m.

This evening will include a benefit concert, short drama performances, art show and sale and a raffle.

The H.J. Cody Fine Arts Department supports the development of young artist in our community. We aim to give the students in our community opportunities to grow personally through exploration of and participation in the arts. Our hope is to enhance our programs by updating facilities, offering scholarships, programming and giving artistic opportunities to kids that may not otherwise be able to afford them.

Over the course of the last eight years we have raised over $30,000 for student scholarships, equipment upgrades and opportunities for students to attend arts based summer camps.

This year’s show will includes drama selections from a year in H.J. Cody Drama Department, songs from our music departments choir, band, and guitar program and theatre program, and of course, a generous selection of art to view and purchase prints from our Art Department.

The show is Saturday May 26 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available at H.J. Cody School’s Main Office or at the door.

If you would like to help by sponsoring part of the evening or have an item for the raffle, please let Jacqui Renwick know at 403-887-2412.

Join us and celebrate our young people and their work at Art & Soul!
