Kamloops Art Page: Sa-Hali Secondary Visual Arts students' self-portraits

Welcome to the weekly Kamloops Art Page.

With the COVID-19 pandemic upending society — socially and economically and dominating news for the foreseeable future — we understand pandemic fatigue can set in for even the most ardent followers of current events.

While continuing to cover all pandemic and non-pandemic-related news, KTW has also worked hard at featuring positive stories from the crisis, tales that capture the essence of humanity, be it volunteers sewing thousands of masks for health-care workers or musicians offering up weekly free concerts online.

This page is an attempt by KTW to bring some colour into the lives of our readers via artwork created locally.

We hope to, on a weekly basis, use this page to showcase works by various Kamloops artists, with between one and three pieces displayed.

Thanks for reading Kamloops This Week and we hope this page can help ease the stress of this uncertain era in which we are living.

Sa-Hali secondary Visual Arts Self-Portraits:

For this assignment, senior students were asked to draw a self-portrait.

Students learned about facial features, proportions and shading as they endeavoured to create realistic graphite impressions of their faces.

Beyond the face, students were encouraged to bring visual creativity and a variety of mediums to imagery that would convey information about their unique personalities.

Students connected with culture, travel destinations, sports and hobbies, role models, music lyrics and inspirational quotes. ​
