ARTIST BIO: Kayla Norfeet is a Grade 10 student at Oyler HS.
ART PROJECT: “For this class project “Creative Expressions for Peace and Justice” students working under the guidance of art teacher Laura Demo, were given an open-ended prompt to create an artwork that tackles a topic related to peace, justice, equality, or a social issue. They were encouraged to look at artists who use their work to spread a message and what kind of tactics were most effective such as use of symbols, text, color, and juxtaposition of imagery. Students fleshed out their ideas through mind mapping and sketches before deciding on the most effective approach for communicating their message.”
