With school back in session, a new collaborative art project has been launched.

Re/LAUNCH/ing is aimed at hitting the same high notes that its predecessor with.draw.all did, but with the added emphasis on the intrinsic value of art to the artist.

Each month, StAlbertTODAY.ca will be displaying an online gallery of art created by high school students. November's rendition features 12 creations from students at Paul Kane, Bellerose and St. Albert Catholic High.

Title: Still Life
Artists' Statement from Sam Mudryk and Josh DeWitt: "When COVID-19 unexpectedly hit our society, life felt so uncertain and stressful. Having the option to stay creative at home was a great way to keep busy during the lockdown. However, when school ended in June, it was hard to pick the pencil up again with the world moving at such a fast pace. Coming into art this second quarter has allowed my imagination to generate so much creativity and has been such an artistic release. I feel very fortunate to be able to have the chance to express myself and relax during such a difficult time."
