French public schools celebrate education week with an exhibition of student artwork

Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l’Ontario (CSPGNO) celebrates Education Week from May 7th to 11th, 2018. Students and teachers will take part in a wide variety of dynamic activities and unforgettable educational experiences.
Among many other activities, students from grades 3 to 6 of CSPGNO elementary schools will proudly exhibit their artwork in the New Sudbury Shopping Centre.

More than 275 works of art from students attending Camille-Perron, de la Découverte, Foyer-Jeunesse, Franco-Nord, Hélène-Gravel, Jean-Éthier-Blais, Jeanne-Sauvé and Pavillon-de-l’Avenir public schools will be on display at the visual arts and cultural exhibition entitled “Expo Pied carré” (Square Foot Exhibition). The public is invited to view the exhibition from May 7th to 11th between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Under the guidance of Pandora Topp, resident artist at the CSPGNO, students created paintings on canvas inspired by the theme “The wide biodiversity of the animal kingdom in Ontario.” Students explored techniques such as drawing, plans, repetition, patterns and dry brushing. In conjunction with the mathematics curriculum, students also examined geometric concepts such as symmetry, reflection, translation and rotation.

Recognized for its keen sense of innovation and openness to the world, CSPGNO offers a French-language public education of the highest quality in eleven elementary schools and eight secondary schools in the communities of Markstay, Noëlville, Greater Sudbury, Elliot Lake, Sault Ste. Marie, Wawa, Dubreuilville, Marathon, Manitouwadge and Longlac.
