Elementary Art Contest work will be on display at Armour Mountain Gallery in July

Elementary Art Contest work on display at Armour Mountain Art Gallery during month of July

In April this year an Elementary Art Contest was held as part of the Arts Festival in Clearwater, and the Celebration of the Arts in Barriere.

The contest was open to all interested elementary students, from kindergarten to grade 7; in two categories: students from kindergarten to grade three and from grade four to grade seven. Students were invited to create a work of two dimensional art on an 8.5 x 11” sheet of paper, using any media they wished: pencil, charcoal, watercolour, acrylics, oil paints, etc. and to supply a short description about their work of art.

All the entries submitted in Barriere were displayed at the Celebration of the Arts Festival which was held at the North Thompson Agriplex, on April 27-28, and the one winner in each category was voted on by the public that attended. Entries submitted in Clearwater were displayed at their Clearwater Arts Festival at Blackpool Hall, on April 20, where the public also voted on their favorites.

The People’s Choice winners in each category at each event received a basket of art supplies, a one year membership to the North Thompson Arts Council, and will be displayed at the North Thompson Art Council’s (NTAC) official art gallery, the Armour Mountain Art Gallery in Barriere.

The People’s Choice winners for Barriere were K-Grade 3 – Bobby-Raye Farrow from Barriere Elementary; and the Grade 4-7 – Charlotte Thorley from Sun Peaks Elementary.

From the Clearwater area the winners were K-3 – Andrew Ludbrook from Raft River Elementary; and the Grade 4-7 – Kelly Ludbrook from Raft River Elementary.

All the winners and entries will be on display for the month of July, along with NTAC artists at the Armour Mountain Art Gallery in Barriere next to the IDA Pharmacy.
