Luther College High School offers a full range of artistic courses for all grades, including a two-year International Baccaloreate Art program. Through Art 9, 10, 20 and 30, students explore many different media in a variety of projects, from murals to masks.
The Luther College Visual Art Program aims to teach students to:
- combine fundamental skills with creative ideas
- gain a lasting appreciation for the arts
- investigate local, national and international artists
- develop technical skills in a variety of media
- respect the uniqueness and creativity of themselves and others
- discuss their work and other artworks in a professional manner
Students expand their art vocabulary by critiquing their own work. Art students are encouraged to respond and discuss the work of their peers.
Students learn a lot from local artists, and so artist visits are a unique part of the Luther art program.
Jack Cowin: Some Art 20 students were able visit the University of Regina Printmaking department. Students observed professional artist Jack Cowin in his studio. Jack is a master printmaker and illustrator, with work featured around the globe. Jack has visited with Luther art students for the past two years and his time and patience are greatly appreciated.
Jefferson Little: Students were treated to a guest lecture by Regina artist Jefferson Little. Jeff has a unique style all his own, that includes sculptures and detailed paintings using old toys as inspiration. Check out some of Jeff's work here.
