ArtsSmarts

The original artwork of 350 Island public school students is on display at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery.

ArtsSmarts is a national program that brings hands on art education into the core curriculum of schools. It is in its seventh year on P.E.I. and once again, the Confederation Centre Art Gallery is holding an exhibition of artwork from the program. The exhibition will showcase many different ages of artists and many different styles of art. This year’s ArtsSmarts show at the Gallery will include work by students from five Island schools: Bluefield High School, Stratford Elementary, Sherwood Elementary, École Saint Augustin and Francois Buote.

Through the ArtsSmarts program, artists work with teachers and students on projects that integrate arts activities into non arts school subject areas. Students combine their learning of core subjects such as math and languages with the help of visual and literary arts, dance, music and theatre.

Dianne Tutty’s Grade six class from Stratford Elementary have been working with Island artist and jewellery maker Ayelet Stewart leaning about wire sculpture. Their 26 wire creations will be showcased alongside a series of 3’x4′ banners which recount the history of Rustico through painting. This second series was made by the students of École Saint Augustin with the guidance of Island artist Lynn Gaudet.

The Gallery is hosting an opening reception Thursday, May 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Sobey Gallery.
