The goal for our three Grade 9 Integrated Arts classes was to create and organize a commemoration of the pandemic. We involved the entire school community in the process so that everyone had the opportunity to contribute their COVID experiences. While our plan was to create a dynamic installation in the Triangle at school, the emergence of Omicron brought new challenges and we made the difficult decision to showcase our commemorative art through this student-built website instead.
Students were challenged to use the different Arts disciplines to express and commemorate both the positive and negative experiences of COVID-19. We are proud of how they have used their creativity and artistry to communicate the visceral impacts of the pandemic.
