Elder Artists in Classrooms Project

September 23 to November 26, 2017

This exhibition showcases works created by students from Central Okanagan Public Schools that have been inspired by seven elder artists. The school project was coordinated by artist and art educator Jim Elwood, and was developed so art students could learn about the rich history of visual arts in the Okanagan Valley. The selected artists are: Lee Claremont, Bob Kingsmill, Mary Smith McCulloch, and the late artists Mary Bull, Allan Brooks, Gwen Lamont, and Daphne Odjig. Students learned how these artists explored subject matter, colour, style, and composition and what these artists were saying about their community through their work. The works were selected for variety and care to represent their class and represent works from students in grades 4 to 12.
