June 2020

After our annual district art show was canceled due to COVID-19 the Royal Bay visual arts department decided to recognize our talented students by offering a virtual show. The art show consisted of seven categories: Drawing, Painting, 3 Dimensional, Printmaking and Mixed Media, Digital Art, Photography, Fabric & Fibre. Each category within the show was adjudicated and the
entire Royal Bay staff had the opportunity to vote for two ‘viewers choice’ awards. We would like to thank the PAC and Opus Art Supplies for supporting this show, and for validating the importance of art and creativity by providing an opportunity to honour our students’ work. We congratulate ALL participants that submitted work to the show, well done everyone!
