A Touch of Class
Art 33 Show May 12 - June 4
Mary Main, CVAA
RT33 is a showcase of the talent and creativity of students from School District 33.
All work has been completed as part of the art programs of Chilliwack Senior, G.W. Graham and Sardis Secondary and has been selected to be part of the exhibition by their teachers.
Students are encouraged to share their personal taste and experience using a wide variety of techniques, themes and approaches.
This annual exhibition is an opportunity for what is often a first exhibition experience for these young artists. Seeing their work in the O'Connor Group Art Gallery in the Cultural Centre, a professional space, outside of the classroom studio, is an exciting way for students to receive validation for their achievements. A number of students who take part in ART33 will go on to pursue careers in the arts.
Jessica Sutherland works on her ink drawing.
ART33 has always been an opportunity for both students, teachers, family and friends to come together to share and enjoy work and ideas. Supporting each other and being inspired by what others are doing have always been a big focus of the show among the students and their peers.
