Arts Council is a great way to get involved with the arts here at Collins. Arts Council provides funding for student programs, maintains several studios that are available to all Collinsites, and produces several different events and publications.
To get involved with Arts Council, to receive funding for programs, or to meet the Arts Council coordinators, come to our meetings! They are typically every other Friday at 4:00 PM in the Coffeehouse. Check the Collins Calendar for the specific dates.
To get involved with the different studios, publications, and events, get in touch with our student coordinators! Also follow Arts Council on Instagram @collinsartscouncil.
Lauren Myers: Arts Council Chair
Hello! I am Lauren Myers, the Arts Council Chair! I’m a junior studying secondary education social studies (Middle and high school education). I want to be a middle school history teacher some day in the not so distant future. This is my third year living in Collins and the LLC has become more and more a part of me as time goes on (next year I hope to be a literal part of the building). As far as art, I was the theatre coordinator last year and have been interested in music, literary arts, and visual arts. I’m really excited to work with Collinsites and arts council for this year. A fun fact and insight to this picture: last year I bought a plastic bird at the dollar store and I now regard him as my son, his name is Chros. He is glittery.
Kristi Schultz: Arts Council Vice Chair
Hello all! I'm Kristi Schultz and your Arts Council Vice Chair for the 2016-2017 school year. I'm currently a Psychology and Criminal Justice double major and set to graduate May 2017. My love for Arts Council really grew last year and I hope to make a strong, cohesive group that achieves great things this year. I've always had a deep appreciation for the arts, even though I'm not the most artistically inclined person out there. However I do love (and miss) choral and competitive singing, as well as just performing in general. As my picture shows I also have a profound love for space and I can talk on and on about the topic. If you're reading this, I encourage you to hit up an Arts Council meeting! It's sure to be a great time.
