The premier’s office now features a student art gallery showcasing the creativity and talent of student artists from schools across P.E.I.

It will feature at least one piece of student artwork from each Island school over the next year.

The initial collection of student artwork displayed in the art garden features 16 pieces by students from Ecole Pierre-Chaisson School, Three Oaks Senior High School, Bluefield High School, Westisle Composite High School and Birchwood Intermediate School.

Premier Dennis King said art sparks conversation, curiosity and enriches learning.

“If we want our students to feel that art is important to learning, to believe that their art is valuable, we need to provide them with an avenue to ensure they feel that way,’’ King said.

The artwork is on display in the reception of the premier’s office and online.
