Student Artwork Chosen for Exhibition

Congratulations to Alyssa Richardson whose work was one of work by 69 students chosen from almost 400 students who submitted from across Canada for the Alberta University of the Arts Show Off High School Student Art Exhibition. 
 
This piece truly represents Thurber at its finest - it is a beautiful work inspired by Alyssa's love for Japan. This piece would not have happened if Alyssa hadn't traveled to Japan with Irons sensei this past summer. Miriam's passion for Japanese language and culture, and the way she brings this to her students, engaging them and providing opportunities for them highlights one of the amazing things about Thurber and what we do for kids. I am proud of Alyssa's success but it has come about through the sharing of students across programs, bringing our passions to them and engaging with one another. This happens throughout our building and we see the richness of these encounters and experiences for kids as they take the opportunities to become engaged through the enthusiasm we share with them.
 
Alyssa was the only Red Deer representative and a first-time Thurber participant in this Exhibition!
 
This piece, and other work by her IB Art classmates, will be on display in International Hall all next week, starting March 26th.
Stop by and check it out!
