Surrey students learn art reflects who we are
A collection of Canadian art that reflects on “who we are as a people” was on display at David Brankin Elementary last week.
The ‘Art is a Mirror’ exhibition was been put together by artist Jeremie Giles and is intended for those who are not connoisseurs of Canadian art.
Students from David Brankin have been examining the paintings and talking about some of the 72 canvases with students from other district schools and members of the public who came to see the show.
“The purpose of the exhibition is to spur the viewer to learn more about life and work of the creative individuals whose artworks have reflected who we are as a people. Thus, the title ‘Art is a Mirror’,” says Carol Sirianni, a school district fine arts helping teacher.
