Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to present the work of grade 3 and 4 elementary students working through the Artist In the Classroom program. 

Students from two local elementary schools have been working with local artist, Jennifer McAuley to create a series of one of a kind, handmade, Art Cards to trade, exhibit and collect. 

Each week for the last few months the students have taken part in a workshop session series that introduces young artists to unique forms of visual expression.  Each student has created a series of art cards that they can keep or trade. 

“By creating a collection of art work…” says McAuley,  “Students learn the value of one of a kind art, as opposed to mass produced, impersonal images and art making. “

Now the students involved have a chance to share their creations with the larger community and the opportunity to experience being part of an Art Opening and Exhibition at Oxygen Art Centre. 

Their work will be on exhibit from May 1-3, and the public are invited, not only view the art but to come and create and trade their own Art Cards!  

The show opens on Friday (May 1) from 5-7 p.m. and gallery hours are Saturday & Sunday from 10 a.m – 1 p.m.  Oxygen Art Centre is located at 320 Vernon Street (back alley entrance) in Nelson. 

Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
