Art is for everyone. Several years
ago, two art teachers from Lakes District Secondary School
creativity throughout the district by hosting a festival
for the visual and performing arts.
To ensure that
students would be encouraged to enter regardless of skill
level, they decided the festival would have few restrictions. “We
have everything from video entries and Powerpoint presentations
to singing and stand-up comedy,” Kim explains. “And
for the visual arts, students are allowed to work in any
medium on any surface.” For example, one 2005 entry
was painted on the hood of a car.
