Fernie Academy students put their artwork on display last week to show off the different techniques they have been learning.

The school opened up its doors on Monday night to showcase the students’ work.

“The Fernie Academy believes that a strong fine arts program is an integral part of a well-rounded education,” said Pepper Couelle-Sterling, art teacher at the Academy.

“Our extensive visual art curriculum combines studio art with art history so that students create artworks with an informed frame of reference. From ancient greek to modern art, students grow to understand figure study, tools and techniques as well as specific art movements globally.

“We hope that you may be as proud as we are of Fernie’s budding young artists.”
