Fine arts take the stage at M State-Fergus Falls during the Fine Arts Showcase on Friday, Nov. 8.

The half-day event will feature hands-on activities that introduce students to the opportunities and programs available to them at M State-Fergus Falls Campus in the areas of writing, visual arts, music and theater.

Area high school instructors have been invited to bring their students, and prospective students can also attend on their own.

The showcase begins at 9:30 a.m., and lunch will be provided from noon to 1 p.m.

Thanks to local community support, funds are available to help pay transportation costs for groups from area high schools.

Students will be able to attend four morning break-out sessions from these options:

• Creative writing, roadside poetry and poetry slam

• Print-making workshop

• Drawing with oil pastel

• Stage makeup

• Backstage pass (theater art and stagecraft)

• Throwing clay the proper way

• Rock and pop (music history)

• Toot your own horn (band)

• Master class guitar
