Eight students who had their art on display in the Ranger Station Gallery for the last month also got to go home with an award for the artistic creativity.
At the Young at Art show reception Sunday (May 26), eight students were awarded prizes for the Most Imaginative, Most Colourful, Most Playful and Most Dramatic pieces in the elementary and high school categories.
For Most Imaginative in the K-7 category, Shyloh Watchorn won for her multi-media forest. Most Imaginative for Grades 8 to 12 was Agassiz Secondary’s Zoel Jackson.
For Most Colourful, the awards went to Alexis Starr (K-7, Kent Elementary), for her kaleidoscope image of colours and shapes, and Samantha Morrison (8-12, Agassiz Secondary).
Most Playful went to Constance Ngo (K-7, Kent Elementary) and Atlee Fox (8-12, Agassiz Secondary). Fox’s drawing of Groot, the tree-like Marvel character made popular by the Guardians of the Galaxy films, was a playful depiction of the character with a rainbow of positive words behind him.
Most Dramatic went to Brooke Anderson (K-7, Kent Elementary) and Carys Bolan (8-12, Agassiz Secondary).
