Photography Projects

Ms. Anderson, Mrs. Halsall and Mrs. Taylor have spent this year looking at the school through a visual arts lens. To kick off the school year each student worked to contribute to a collaborative art piece. The large mandala in the front entrance was created by each student in CJP colouring in a miniature mandala using their own unique colour combinations. The teachers all rallied behind the project and set aside a quiet and relaxing time for students to work mindfully on their mandalas. Many students used the intricate designs in mandalas to create interesting colour patterns. Finally, each mini mandala was put together to form a large perfect circle for a collective mandala.

In the Discovery Garden you will find sign boards bought by parent council displaying the work of students who participated in a Pop-Up maker station. Each student used small objects to create a self portrait through similes. For example, a small music note may become a nose or an eye in the portrait to show that the person "Is as musical as a music note". The art will be displayed until mid June.

Finally, two CJP parents, Tomie Horton and Tracy Elliott, offered their time and talents to photograph the students at work at CJP. This amazing collection of photographs, all printed by Tracy Elliott, is on display outside the library. The photos showcase the kind, caring and unique community of Captain John Palliser.
