Trojan Art Day on Friday was chilly and damp but Mother Nature couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of those who came to learn more about art from university instructors, volunteer artists and from student artists themselves.

Dr. Kelly Berwager, Troy University art education advisor and organizer of Troy Art Day 2024 said approximately 450 students from throughout the district came to experience a university campus, to participate in hands-on art projects and to learn from instructors and students who are knowledgeable and enthusiast about art and, perhaps, plan a career that includes some form of art.

“Trojan Art Day is always a special day for coming together to celebrate the power of the visual arts design,” Berwager said. “Troy Art Day offers workshop, demonstrations and mini competitions led by students and faculty from the Department of Art and Design.”
