School art
A travelling exhibition of porcelain art by Canadian artists Dawn Detarando and Brian McArthur is at Primeau School. Kyaira Himschoot looks over the piece by Brian McArthur titled Kerry Wood Author and Naturalist with Chickadees. The goal for the two artists was to create artwork that shared their passion for birds and the exhibit titled Bird Frieze. New Works in Porcelain features two-dimensional and three-dimensional sculptures. Porcelain enhances the extremely detailed carvings and relief on each piece. Students will learn about craftsmanship, comprehension, creativity and composition, and can create related art.
