Grand opening of KRC’s new 3-D Art Studio

It’s been a long time coming, but according to Cam Choy, KRC associate professor of art, the new studio will be a great addition to KRC’s art department.

“The new facility will broaden the range of artistic expression for students. Sculpture and ceramics require a dedicated space for material manipulation which the new space provides for.

Thanks to the efforts of my predecessor Celia Anderson, there’s an established program for painting and surface design.

Students now have the opportunity to explore their creative potential in the third dimension and can take advantage of my experience as a sculptor,” Choy said.

The new studio will be the center of activity for the future of our arts program! Courses and workshops will open new doors for visual expression for those who sign up.

As the space becomes established, I believe the work created in it will make an important impact on the local and regional art scene.”

The public is invited to attend the grand opening of the new studio from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, April 22 in KRC Ward Building room 104. Professor Choy is looking forward to showing off the state-of-the-art studio and he invites everyone to come enjoy refreshments and celebrate the new facility.

Choy has already engaged his sculpture prowess in the community with the partnership he has forged with Central Peninsula Hospital.

“I am very excited that I have been commissioned to create an outdoor sculpture garden to be viewed from patient suites. The project will be constructed in our facility this summer. This project will lead the way for student service learning projects in the semesters to follow. The new studio will serve as a platform for community outreach and engagement which will enhance student learning and enrich the community at large,” Choy said.
