student has submitted a piece of work to represent themselves.
Lauren Conway, a grade 12 student at St. Dominic says she is
excited “for the experience this gives to students who are going
to study art in the future.” Student works include universal
themes such as nature, death, abstraction, mental health, the
environment and more. The students have been learning about using
acrylic and watercolor paints as well as creating sculptures to
convey their messages. “This is a great opportunity for students
to experience a real gallery setting, and affords them the
learning experience of pricing their work and displaying
it,” says Heidi Jeske, an art teacher at Bracebridge Muskoka
Lakes Secondary School. “I really appreciate this opportunity
offered to us by Muskoka Arts & Crafts. It is such a valuable
learning experience for the students. They have worked hard to
create work that is meaningful and engaging.”
Art in Me opens with a public reception on Saturday, February 1
from 1pm until 4pm. There will be music and light refreshments.
“This is a great chance to meet the artists and hear about their
processes,” expresses St. Dominic teacher, Shanandoah Kidd.
“It is important to hear from the voices of young people. This
show is a great opportunity for students to share their vision and
express their ideas about our world. It is important for young
people to be heard.”
