Prince Rupert’s artistic future is in good hands

A new ocean-themed art show showcased a range of work at Roosevelt Elementary School last week

A new ocean-themed art show showcased a range of work including pastels, print design, photography and First Nations designs at Roosevelt Elementary School’s gymnasium last week.

More than 200 people attended by donation and every student completed their own art piece. Each class also created a community piece.

“It’s good for building school community, even the preschool contributed,” said organizer Ashlee Wilson, a Grade 2-3 teacher at Roosevelt. Well-known photographer Lonnie Wishart and First Nations artist Nakkita Trimble, who was supported by the Aboriginal Education role model program, worked with the classes in the show’s lead-up.

Principal Andrée Michaud hopes this will become an annual event. The Roosevelt Parent Advisory Council donated $50 per class to spend on supplies. Michaud said the donations from this year will help pay for next year’s event.
