The SKSS Visual Arts Department believes that the quality of a student’s life is uniquely enriched in essential ways by the development of skills and values learned in the creation of artworks. Visual arts encourage the students to function on multiple intellectual, analytical, thoughtful and expressive levels.

It's Hard to Say Goodbye!

Au Revoir, Bon Voyage! - Tschüss, Alles Gute!

Coming to Canada and being part of an art class has been a wonderful a experience. At the beginning we didn't know anybody but we met some very nice people, very quickly. Teachers were very helpful and helped us discover lots of art techniques. We really enjoyed being part of the Kamloops' calendar project; it made us improve our art skills and imagination. Today is our last day and we are so sad to leave all these amazing students, teachers and this very pleasant class !

The difference between Canada and Germany is really big. The landscape is amazing and wide open. The school is much easier and the teachers have a much better relationship to the students than in Germany. We are proud to be a part of the calendar project but we are really sad that we can not be at the Opening Reception. It was an amazing experience to be in this art foundation class. We made a lot of new friends there.
We will definitely come back to Kamloops and we will miss being a part of SKSS.

Today was the last day of classes for our exchange students from France and Germany!  They have been valuable contributors to art room.  Thanks for all your  Enthusiasm and Creativity!
