CCA And TVFCU Partner To Provide Artistic Tabletops For Riverbend

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Visual art students from Chattanooga High School Center for Creative Arts, in partnership with Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union, present the 2017 collection of bistro tables featuring original student artwork.  

Displayed during the Riverbend festival at the TVFCU stage underneath the Walnut Street Bridge, these tables were created in a variety of artistic styles by both middle and high school students to celebrate all the wonders and natural beauty of the outdoors.  

Students designed and executed the original artwork to celebrate their unique visions of aquatic themed paintings. 

Please contact CCA if interested in the purchase of a tabletop.

Students interested in CCA audition in one arts major: acting, communications, dance, instrumental music, musical theatre, technical theatre, visual arts, or vocal music. Once admitted, students receive intensive training in their arts majors and experience a rigorous curriculum in fine arts and academic courses. CCA produces more than 70 public performances and exhibits on campus each year. 

Although auditions have concluded for the 2017-2018 school year, auditions for 2018-2019 will take place in February of 2018 and are open to all students in Hamilton County.  Applications for all magnet schools in Hamilton County are available from November through January each year.
