BX Elementary School Art in the Community

Feb 7, 2023

With fantastic support from several local businesses people can now view a new inventory of artwork from BX Elementary School students around Vernon, BC.

Teacher Meghan Budd has spearheaded the initiative with support from Vernon Silver Star Rotary. Artwork from students in grades K-7 are being showcased and rotated around the establishments.

"The idea is to both build self-confidence among the student-artists in showing their work, but also in demonstrating to the community just how high the bar is with respect to what these young artists are capable of," said Ms. Budd.

The participating business include:

  • Boarding House Cafe
  • Phoenix Steakhouse & Bar
  • Ratio Coffee
  • Wings Tap House

Art will be displayed for several weeks, and then new pieces will be displayed in the establishments.

Those who appreciate art as well as those wishing to support these young artists are encouraged to visit the establishments to have a look, and perhaps grab a coffee or a glass of wine while contemplating the creativity.

According to Megan Frankiw, Co-owner of Phoenix Steakhouse "We've had a few people even ask if they can purchase the pieces. The quality of this work is way beyond what we would expect from kids this age."
