The Kelowna Art Gallery is pleased to host our 26th annual Art in Action exhibition. This exhibition features over 125 works of art created by students in Kelowna’s public and private high schools.
Art in Action is a celebration of the creativity and artist talent of local youth. Each year, middle and high school students are asked to explore their imaginations, creating their own creative visions of life through painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, and photography.
The Kelowna Art Gallery has been working closely with the art teachers in School District No. 23 each year for the past twenty-five years on these annual exhibitions. Art in Action not only highlights the exemplary art activities taking place in local classrooms, but is also meant to give students an increased sense of pride in their work, while providing a valuable learning experience. Art in Action is one of our highlighted community exhibitions at the Kelowna Art Gallery, as it is always fascinating to see the thoughts and ideas of our youth.
