Ready, Aim, Paint

Ready, Aim, Paint

Media club member Alec Humphries prepping the range equipment.

Media Arts Club will be hosting a paint-ball range as their event for Spring Fling this March.  Students are offered ten shots per dollar and will be using the equipment to fire paint upon a giant canvas which afterward will be hung in the Rhea Arts building.  All proceeds will go to the Media Arts Club.

As of this time, the event is planned to be held in the open space next to the chapel, where the canvas will be set up and accompanied by two to four guns.  The work will obviously be splatter art, but seeks to involve students all over the panola campus.

The event was inspired by previous idea by ex-president Jayson Wright to create a work of art in which the whole campus participated.  The project never went through, but was re-purposed with other ideas from the current club and combined with proposals to raise funds.   Proceeds from the event will go towards future events by the club.

In fact, the Media Club yet has a number of future events and projects in the works, which include:  the next two Howl After Dark nights (March 8 and April 4),  a suicide prevention awareness piece for the library, a flash mob, a Panola Harlem Shake, and also the Intaglio art and literary magazine.  This is by and far the most active semester MAC has ever had, and although the paintball range is only the beginning, it’s definetly not an event to be missed.  Be a part of Panola’s masterpiece, and get ready, aim, paint!
