Fairfax Academy: Talent on Display

Creative Works Showcase, awards program to be held June 5.

Signature Projects created by second year Fairfax Academy students will be featured at Fairfax Academy’s annual Creative Works Showcase on Tuesday, June 5, 6:30-7:45 p.m. at the Fairfax HS Commons, followed by the Awards Program, 8 p.m. at the Fairfax HS Auditorium.

The showcase of original work, in the format of a culture and arts festival, will include dance, music, and theatre performances; Chinese and Korean language cultural displays; a film festival; photography, graphic design, and animation displays; and the fashion design collections of student designers. Students will be on hand to host the Showcase and answer questions about their creations.

Second year Signature Projects are culminating capstone projects that represent a student’s body of work at the Academy – many are creative projects (choreography, music compositions, fashion collections, portfolios, films), others involve academic research. All Signature Projects are presented to industry professionals and/or invited educators for review and feedback, with the most outstanding projects honored at the Academy’s Awards program. Many other accomplished students will also be recognized at the awards program.

The Academy’s Awards Program will follow the showcase, beginning with Red Carpet Interviews streamed live into the auditorium by a crew of TV Production students, followed by a procession of Korean students on Samulnori drums and a performance by Dance students. Dan DeLuca, actor/filmmaker, will be the guest emcee to host the Awards program and recognize student honorees. The Grand Finale of the evening will be a fashion runway presentation of original designs created by second year Fashion Design students.

Admission to both events is free.
