Art show at Golden Secondary

Students in art teacher Tanya Hobbs’ Grade 10/11/12 split class are set for their end of semester art show, taking place on Jan. 27.

Students in art teacher Tanya Hobbs’ Grade 10/11/12 split class at Golden Secondary School have been readying their work for their end of semester showcase, an art show that will take place on Jan. 27.

For the show, students were asked to use techniques, strategies and theories learned throughout the course, while also explaining their source of inspiration and their use of various design elements.

Monty Wright says she is proud of her finished product.

“When I thought of this I was just kind of thinking about what someone sees every day, the sky during the day and at night, (and) putting those together in a way that someone hadn’t seen it before was kind of my initial idea,” she said of her piece that used acrylic on watercolour paper.

Piper Noble admits she made a couple small mistakes with her piece, but believes those will add character to the piece she created on canvas using poster and acrylic paints.

“I like the idea of skeletons and stuff talking to each other, I just think it’s kind of funny,” she explained.

For Gage Chernoff, his inspiration came from a character in a video game.

“He’s the most annoying character you could ever imagine,” he laughed. “He’s hilarious and very annoying and you just wish somehow that he would end up gone from the game.”

Chernoff used pencil and a Sharpie marker to create his work, which he says took him a considerable amount of time.

Hobbs says the class used a large variety of mediums while combining them in different ways.

“I am impressed with the work that students have generated. They are clearly dedicated to improving their skills in art and have shown considerable development since September,” she said.

There will be a lunch time opening from 12:30 to 1 p.m. on Jan. 27 in the GSS library, with an after school opening from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., but the art will remain on display long after then and individuals can sign in at the office to view the students’ work.
