Last year we hosted the 2012 Elmwood School’s art student’s annual show highlighting their hard work throughout the year. Looking at the work I would not have expected it to be from high school art students!! They consumed all that their art teacher, Heawon Chun, had to offer.
Vernissage – Friday, May 3rd; 7-9pm

“The Annual Elmwood Spring Art Show 2013 is a showcase of selected works from the Grade 9-12 programs, presented at Ottawa Studio Works to give the aspiring art students their first experience in the art world.
The standards for the show are high, and the resulting caliber of the works is impressive.
Among the variety of works, the show includes plaster orbs conveying natural and surreal elements all at once.
Grade 9 students began with observational studies of nature to compose original designs, which were transposed into plaster using the ‘reductive process’. In another project, they were challenged to reflect on their inner personal strengths and represent those in symbols, invented or researched, and rendered as a Watercolour Mandala composition.
The show’s works range from diminutive to very large, and include:
• Mixed Media
Using the Mix Media, Installation, grade 10 – 12 students were led through various mark making exercises, and found-object sculpting to free them from conventional and potentially restrictive modes of drawing and sculpture.
Older students were opened to an understanding of the relevance and acceptance of mark making as a drawing in the contemporary framework of art. Student’s experiments fashioned breathtaking drawings and found-object sculptures with their personal artistic signatures.
The show is open to the public.”
