Black Canadians in black, white and grey

Inspired and informed … we’re recognizing some outstanding recent student work, completed by Ms. Leblanc’s grade 9 to 12 students. It’s work that should make the New Westminster Secondary School community proud!

Ms. Le Blanc encouraged students to research a prominent figure from Black History in Canada, representing their contributions in black and white tessellation patterns. That means students created artwork that is equal parts black and white to symbolize the need for equal representation … not only for today, but in our retelling of history as well. These students demonstrated commitment to representing their subject of choice through thoughtful imagery and artist statements.

Take some time to appreciate the talent, thought and reflections shared by these NWSS students.
