Rule #1 in art...there are no rules!! 😎 Year two of William Carey University’s Carey About Art program began today for the ! And Rick Wilemon was amazing with the kids yet again! They learned about drawing figures, proportions, and illusion. The program has now brought hands on art lessons to more than 400 students in Hattiesburg in just 2018! Isn’t that amazing?!

MOU Signing with William Carey University

Awesome leadership for both the City of Hattiesburg and William Carey University. We are Carey Strong.


“Art with Dinny“ is such a great opportunity for our residents to sharpen their creative skills! (Ms. Dinny St. John is something of a local legend- many, many Hattiesburg students have called her their teacher!) Classes meet at 10 AM on Wednesdays. For more information, or to sign up for classes, call 601-255-7506!


Carey About Art, William Carey University’s community arts outreach initiative spent the morning at Petal Upper Elementary. The students really moved the needle with their unique approaches to collage making.

A student talks about her fav work by Charles Price in the “Finding My Way” exhibit at The Lucile Parker Gallery on the Hattiesburg campus of William Carey University.

⬇️ GO SEE THE ART: Abbey Walker went to see “Finding My Way,” an exhibit of work by Charles Price on display through Thursday, Oct 25. Here’s what she said when she got back …

“As I walked into the Lucile Parker Gallery, I felt intimidated and awed, the kind of feeling you get when walking into a quiet church. I am not an artist, or even an art student, but I was able to appreciate each piece in the exhibit.

“The piece I was drawn to the most was called Yellow Dots. At first I was like, okay, these are nicely colored blobs of paint, but as I looked closer I these ‘blobs of paint’ began to look like people. And inside these funny little people were fantastic mish-mashes of color. All the figures were similar on the outside – yellow heads, black bodies with a few appendages. But on the inside, every figure had a unique collage of color and pattern.

“It was the inside that made the figures beautiful and interesting, and I suppose that is comparable to, well, us! We are all similar on the outside, and it’s what’s on the inside that makes us unique or beautiful or, in some people’s case, ugly. Is this what the artist was going for? Probably not. But I think it’s amazing that a painted canvas could inspire these thoughts.

“Go by and visit the exhibit before it’s gone. Taking a quiet moment to think and explore and appreciate what was in front of me was extremely peaceful. And with finals coming up, I think we all could use a moment of peace.”
