Four students from the Artists for Kids (AFK) Studio Art Academy have recently had their artwork selected to be displayed at an international art show in Tallinn, Estonia, this coming fall.
The curators of the Contemporary Art Triennial Eksperimenta! received over 400 applications from 10 countries, eventually accepting four art pieces from students participating in the Studio Art Academy program with Artists for Kids.
In total, nine Canadian art projects will be displayed at the triennial exhibition in Estonia from October - December.
The Contemporary Art Triennial Eksperimenta! is a multi-level international art education project designed for students between the ages of 14 and 21, as well as artists and art teachers.
The mission of E! is to support the development of critical, socially sensitive and creative thinking in society through the unification of contemporary art and art education. The main aim of Eksperimenta! is to bring art and art education closer to each other.
The upcoming Eksperimenta! will be taking place from October 20 - December 3, 2017 in Tallinn Art Hall, the Art Hall Gallery and City Gallery under the overarching theme of "Art and Economy".
About Studio Art Academy
In the AFK Studio Art Academy hosted at Carson Graham Secondary, senior students (Grades 10 - 12), develop skills and attitudes to broaden their options, encourage their success in post-secondary art studies and open the door to careers in the arts.
Through in-depth exploration of drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture, students create personal portfolios and work towards year-end exhibitions in the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art.
