The judges have spoken! Paula Rayo takes it with "The Memoirs of War", Andrew An gets #2 with "Snowboarding" and Nikki Watts is in #3 with "Thunder Dancer". Awesome work from them - and from all the finalists - and so many of the other entries. All the entries can still be seen (for now) if you still have your bookmarks set up, like this one: http://makeart.gallery.ca/gallery/most-popular/
These shots from Iqaluit, Nunavut. Looks like a blast, all hosted by NUSCHOOL and organized by Pascal Arpin with assistance from the Katimavik Kids. See more at http://nuschool.ca/recap-of-the-national-youth-arts-week-as-seen-through-the-lens-of-nuschool/

http://photobucket.com" target="_blank">"> This is one of many banners created by students at Peterborough Collegiate & Vocational School and used to decorate downtown Peterbourough in the summer of 2011. PCVS is in danger of closing despite a strident campaign to prevent such a thing from happening. Even Rick Mercer weighs in!

Summer vacation found this private cabin in the Octopus Islands of British Columbia. The cabin contains hundreds of pieces of art made of flotsam and jetsam, old boat parts and natural materials. The art is contributed by visiting boaters and is clearly a family affair with the names of the vessels and their crew worked into each piece. Super inspiring.
Thank you to the owners for their generosity in allowing this to happen!

Here are some arresting images of colour used to revisit established images.
An accomplished artist and teacher, Renee Van Halm reworked a famous Canadian Painter... check out Knowledge Network's short videos at http://www.knowledge.ca/program/cartographies-shorts , and choose the one with the graphic that looks like the top one above.
Next are two cool images from arthurbuston.blogspot.com found via boingboing.net. Not Canadian nor student work, but just cool. In one of them he analyzed the five most predominant colours from some Van Gogh paintings and presented their predominance in pie charts. Visual Analytics meets art.

Here's the cover art for the British Columbia Secondary Schools’
2011 Earth Day Art Show and Competition. This powerful image is uncredited, but it comes from one of the three documents describing the contest... oh, this just in... the artist is Grade Twelver Brooke Thomas. We're not sure which school, but likely in Surrey, BC based on the link...
Your teacher has to register your intention to compete by January 28th, then the art must be delivered in Surrey by March 11th. Your process must be documented and seems to be important for the judging. Since that makes for a big project, may we suggest integrating your research efforts with that of other school assignments?
