The fine and performing arts provide significant opportunities for students to learn and to represent learning.  In addition to classroom activities developed by our talented instructional team, we actively seek opportunities to connect with community artists.

This year, our intensive (three-month) school-wide artist in residence project focused on digital animation.  Students worked with digital artists from Quick Draw Animation to develop animated movies.  These were highlighted in our Film Festival (March 2, 2018) and available for you to view in the following video:

We wish to thank our School Council for helping to fund this activity.  We would also like to thank the Alberta Foundation for the Arts for their Artists and Education grant.



Hands-on exploration of themes ranging from robotics, buoyancy and inclusive playgrounds are taking place in our new Maker Space. And, bilingual, interdisciplinary learning is underway in the Arts Space. Monster Lab is just one example. In May, students across grade levels took part in a workshop where they created a springtime monster character and submitted their drawings to Calgary's award-winning glass artists at Bee Kingdom Glass. We submitted student drawing and the artists have chosen some to sculpt out of glass in the studio. Once the pieces are complete, they will be put on display in schools, local businesses, and galleries. Here is the first monster, El rey de las sandias, drawn by Ethan in Grade 3.
