Evening of the Arts—Student Artists
Student artists will have the opportunity to display their creative works at the 10th annual Evening of the Arts on Thursday, April 6, from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the MALAD MIDDLE SCHOOL GYM. Parents, friends, and community members are all invited to see the talents of our local students at this free event.
The adult art students of accomplished watercolor artist Dianne Adams will display their works of art. Kathy Williams, Cassidi Bennett, Jean Jones, Suzanne Pierson, Cherry McFarland and Sabrina Nipko have been taking lessons from Dianne and will display examples of what they have learned at the Evening of the Arts.
Malad Elementary School 4th and 5th grade students have been working very hard on their chalk art projects. Teachers Kallie Blaisdell, Jordan Cook, Lindsay Waldron, Cinniman Allen, Christie Schow and Brinn Bagley have channeled the energy of their students into creating with this art medium.
The art works of Malad Middle and High School art students have been created under the direction of Krystal Tavoian Fonnesbeck, the art instructor. A variety of media have been used by these students on their unique works of art.
The Malad High School culinary arts students of Shantel Tavoian will provide various flavors and colors of popcorn as grab-and-go refreshments.
The Malad High School Chamber Choir, under the direction of Foster Garrett, will provide a short music program at the event.

A special guest will be handing out bags of candy to kids during the evening. In keeping with the Easter theme, the displays created by the departments at the hospital will show what people can do with Peeps to turn candy into art.
A Minky orange and black blanket made by Sue Evans and a baby blanket made by Carrie Hess will be raffled off during the evening. Tickets will be sold at the event.
Baskets of practical, beautiful, and unique gifts donated by local businesses, gift cards for local restaurants, an overnight stay at a cabin in Island Park, tickets to theater productions by the Iron Door Playhouse, the Cache Valley Theater and Tuacahn, car care products, gardening supplies, sports clothing and equipment, food treats, and works of art are among the items to be raffled in live and silent auctions during the evening. Everyone is invited to come and bid on gifts for themselves or others.
