Banner artists show off talents

Arts Council

Once again elementary schools on the Sun-shine Coast have been approached by the Sun-shine Coast Arts Council encouraging teachers to submit students’ art work for the coming year’s banners.

The Banner Project has been an annual event for more than 20 years.

Each year students paint their interpretation of a specific theme. This year’s theme “Why I Love Living on the Sunshine Coast” has resulted in just shy of 500 entries from 10 different schools.

Congratulations to all the teachers who have submitted their students’ work. As always it is hard to select the 20 art works, which will be transformed to the banners.

The selected banners for 2014 are: From Kinnikinnick Elementary: Taylor Krake, 6, Asanani Baurin, 7, Jett Riepe, 7, and Violet Rae, 12.

From West Sechelt Elementary: Brady Davison, 7, Erin Kaatz, 8, Ashaya Walkey, 10, Austin Fournier, 12, and Lauren Arsenault, 7.

From Langdale Elementary: Alex Hall, 10.

From Ecole du Pacifique: Pippa Boothroyd, 10.

From Sun Haven School: Leya Studer, 10.

From Gibsons Elementary: Lily Dumaresq-Krakalovich, 10, Logan Ruth, 12, and Sacha Stipek, 7.

From Halfmoon Bay Elementary: Malakai Baptiste, 10.

From Davis Bay Elementary: Sam Fitzgerald, 9.

From Roberts Creek Elementary: Jessica Carroll, 11.

From Pender Harbour Secondary: Jessica Girard, 12, and Lenna Ito, 12.

The Banner Project is currently exhibiting at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre until this Sunday, Dec. 15. The exhibit culminates with a reception from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. when Sechelt Mayor John Henderson will be joined by Neil Clayton from Claytons Heritage Market, the Banner Project sponsor for 2014. Henderson and Clayton will present the 20 selected banner artists with their awards.

The selected banners will adorn Sechelt’s Civic Square housing the city’s Aquatic Centre, library and District office, Justice Services Building and the Seaside Centre and Visitors Info Centre from February to November 2014.
