Young Visual Artists Reflect on Earth Day Theme
On Thursday evening , April 19th, forty eight young visual artists, their parents and teachers gathered in Art Gallery II for an exhibition and celebration. The competition, sponsored by YEA!, asked young artists from P -12 to respond to the Earth Day inspired theme: Living and Learning for a Healthy World. Almost a hundred students submitted a variety of inspired visual pieces in a different visual and mixed media. Twelve pieces were chosen and will be professionally framed and on permanent display at Cape Breton University. In her remarks to the students and parents, Ms. Schneider commented on the creativity displayed by the many visual interpretations of the theme and encouraged the young artists to continue to find ways to express themselves through the visual arts.
