In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Legislative Assembly of Ontario is creating a series of banners featuring the unique artistic talents of young Ontarians aged 14-25. Artists from across the province were invited to submit their artwork digitally for consideration prior to January 2, 2017. The theme that artists were to acknowledge in their work was: What do you love about Ontario?
Algoma District School Board and Michipicoten High School are very proud to announce that MHS Grade 9 student Anna Lachine was one of the ten young artists whose artwork was selected.
The ten selected works will be printed on vinyl banners that will be prominently displayed on the south grounds of Ontario’s Legislative Building in Toronto. The banners will be on display from mid-January until mid-December 2017. In addition to the banner display at Queen’s Park, Anna’s winning painting will be featured on the Legislative Assembly of Ontario’s website.
Anna’s water colour and ink drawing depicts a location not far from Anna’s home in Wawa – Driftwood Beach at the mouth of Michipicoten River on the shores of Lake Superior.
