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.

On behalf of the Art Department at SKSS, please accept our gratitude and thanks for your generosity. Our program is enhanced in material, tangible ways by the generosity of the Kamloops Community.   It is always amazing to see how support from local media and organizations impacts art students.  In fact, I believe students begin to understand the true impact of visual arts through our exhibition and calendar publication.

By supporting the arts, students are given an opportunity to have a well-rounded education. It has been proven that art students succeed in school at a higher level and elsewhere in life. They learn patience, dedication, respect and that there are many different ways to see and interpret the world. Again, thank-you so much for supporting the South Kamloops Secondary Visual Arts program.
