Mills Falls - One of My Images Used to Teach the Students

For a number of years, I’ve done a project that is sponsored by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia where they hire a working artist to go into the schools and teach students the concepts of the teacher’s art. This is the fourth time I’ve done this kind of work, and in an exciting development, the student’s work is going to be shown in an exhibition at ArtsPlace in Annapolis Royal.
The show, entitled Through Young Eyes, opens tomorrow in the Library Gallery of ArtsPlace and a reception will be held from Noon to 2 pm. I’ll be there at the opening, and later next week, the kids will get to visit the Gallery and see their work on exhibit for themselves.
It is very satisfying to see the students work with the concepts they learned and I think that such programs are a huge boost for the arts in general and thank the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Department of Education and Early Child Development for their support. I am also extremely happy to have gotten to work with the very nice folks at ArtsPlace again, who also have a great eye for putting forth art, and particularly visual art.
The show runs from June 3 through until the July 1 weekend, so if you’re in Annapolis Royal this month, why not drop in and look Through Young Eyes.
