“He who works with his hands is a labourer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.” (Francis of Assisi)

KING’S ART WORLD
King’s Art World is an artistic community that welcomes everyone. The students’ journey is a multimedia approach. It helps them develop their artistic abilities whether it is to pursue an artistic career or to enjoy art simply as a hobby.

Each student artist is encouraged to create and develop skills that provide self satisfaction, gratification, and the motivation to produce items from the heart. As students create their own art world they learn to appreciate the beauty of life.

STUDENT ARTISTS
Each work of art is an expression of the creative skills and imagination of the student artists. Their journey through this visual expression includes the use of materials such as graphite pencils, pen and ink, wax colour pencils, pastels, watercolour, and also charcoal, acrylic, and oil.

WHAT IS ART?
Art can be powerful as it is a vehicle for the expression of emotions and ideas. It inspires us to look at the world through a new lens. It is also an opportunity to visit a private space where time and commitment don’t exist, just freedom to create.
One student defined art as a quiet friend who “helps me to express myself; art also takes me to a contemplative space where I find rest and peace.”

FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT
Art happens when what is seen becomes mixed with the inside of the person who is seeing it. The artistic creations at this art show reflect the personal expression from each student artist. Visitors are invited to enjoy what is displayed and to remember that art is to be appreciated primarily for its beauty and emotional powers.

“Celui qui exécute un travail avec ses mains est un ouvrier. Celui qui exécute un travail avec ses mains et sa tête est un artisan. Celui qui exécute un travail avec ses mains, sa tête et son cœur est un artiste. (François d’Assisi)

‘KING’S ART WORLD’ est une communauté artistique qui nous accueille tous. Par une approche multidisciplinaire chaque étudiant apprend à développer ses talents artistiques. Il utilise une variété de matériaux tels que crayons cirés, en couleurs, en graphite, en pastel, ainsi que plume et encre, peinture à l’aquarelle, dessin au fusain (charcoal), acrylique ou huile.

On constate que chaque pièce individuelle dévoile les habilités artistiques et imaginaire de l’étudiant. Cette démarche met en valeur leurs talents dont certains poursuivront une carrière dans l’art, ou tout simplement comme un passe-temps favori. À travers ce cheminement, chacun de nous apprécions la beauté de la vie qui nous entoure.

L’art nous aide à pénétrer dans l’esprit de notre culture qui nous touche au point de nous émouvoir. Un artiste est celui qui nous dévoile par le moyen de son choix quelque chose de personnel. Vous êtes invités à admirer les œuvres d’arts de cette exposition. Nous croyons que l’art doit être apprécié surtout pour sa beauté et son pouvoir émotionnel.

‘Pour un artiste, la création n’est pas un travail, c’est respirer, c’est exister.’ (Gilbert Choquette)’
