Each time the Airdrie Public Library is privileged to host the work of our local high school students we are amazed by the vast array of creative talent showcased. And though the work spans a variety of genres and media it comes together, like a mosaic, to create something new, thought-provoking and beautiful. And like a mosaic, it always gives me great pleasure to share the diverse work of several high schools in Airdrie. Though the work is all as varied and unique as each student, I believe that the goal of each teacher is always the same, to teach their students to capture what they see and feel, to share their voice through their work.
The teachers who take this time to encourage and inspire their students by sharing their talents with our community are to be commended. What their students learn now will aid them in their future endeavors, regardless of their career choices, whether they become professional artists, work in other professions, or in their involvement in their community. And the commitment and talent of these students is something to be admired. We are grateful for this opportunity to share this amazing work with our community.
