VCI students tap into their creativity

Year-end show reveals diverse artistic talents

Virden Collegiate art students from Grades 9 to 12 are showing their best work at the Arts Mosaic gallery. Visitors are sure to be surprised and delighted by the range of skill levels and mediums used by these budding artists.

Students were challenged to create pieces that reveal what each of them feels is their unique strength and then write an “artist statement” that explains the thought process and challenges of creating it. They also got to choose their favorite piece from the semester to include in the show.

Each grade had a different focus based on their course work throughout the year, for example Grade 9s studied the elements of art and Grade 10s the principles of art.

Being in Grade 11, students Abbey Tomlinson and Wyatt Gillis (pictured) explored different mediums.

The students’ exhibit runs until June 20 at Arts Mosaic in the CPR Historic Centre in Virden.
