"Art Café" Art Battle and Exhibit

December 14th, 2018

Our biannual Art Battle and Exhibit was a success! Ten grade 11 students participated in a live painting competition emceed by Canada's 2016 Art Battle Champion, Allan André. Thank-you to all of the painters who participated - this exciting event could not have happened without you!

Along with the art battle, over 500 works of art by students in grades 7-12 were on display. Our talented grade 12 art students presented their portfolio work and answered questions about their art and process. The event also included an art market, a silent auction, and an interactive "Kids' Zone" organized by the sheltered (ESL) integrated arts class. Many thanks to Youth Ottawa's Artistic Mentorship Program (AMP) which provided equipment and art event production training for our grade twelve class.
