Art Overview

Bev Facey Art is an exciting and dynamic program that gives students the opportunities to develop their creative potential.

Through the disciplines of drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and sculpture, students develop the necessary skills to make their visions a reality. Students learn how to look and talk about their art with confidence as they learn about art today and how artists throughout history have expressed their ideas.  The program’s strength is the ability to instill in students a real passion for art as students explore and appreciate the world around them. The program is versatile and adaptable in building on skills developed in previous art courses and life experiences while preparing students for post-secondary programs.

The teacher, Mr. Allan Milne is a practicing artist and believes strongly in giving students artwork exposure through various galleries and other spaces around Sherwood Park. Showing in local galleries and other shows gives students confidence and shows students what it is like to work as a professional artist. Student’s artwork is also celebrated in a variety of ways around the school including many murals and displays with one display case devoted to the artist of the week.
