Saffron the hue for January Colour Scheme exhibit

Online show features pieces by high school art students from Paul Kane, St. Albert High

Colour Scheme is a rotating monthly online art show featuring selected works by students of Bellerose, Paul Kane, and St. Albert Catholic high schools. Each month of the school year, several pieces will be highlighted on The Gazette's website on the last Saturday of the month.

Students from Paul Kane and St. Albert High schools explored the colour saffron for the month of January.

From the teachers:

"Saffron is a colour that symbolizes the path of enlightening or new beginnings. People who wish to develop a new vision favour the saffron colour. It means that new light has come in your life that will eliminate the negative forces and fill you with positivity. It gives a new perception that will transform the personality for betterment."

Artists' statement: 

This month we wanted to celebrate more art. So the schools collaborated on a project called: “I’m Just Wild About Saffron!” We worked small (5"x7”) and used only paper that was previously splashed and splattered with the colour Saffron. Students were able to choose their own theme and subject and created amazing pieces.
