South Delta Secondary students will have their art on display at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn this month.
What if... is the title of the 13th annual student art show, which opens today.
The "What if " theme "opened the doorway to so many possibilities for both working imaginatively or realistically," says SDSS fine arts department head Julie Lymburner.
She says she's always impressed with how the student shows turn out.
"The kids work in a really tight timeframe. Many of them had around 10 classes or less from inception of idea to the completion of the work, which is not a long time."
Grade 12 students Sarah Ellwood, Sarah Kinsey and Morgan Bourque have artwork in the show.
Ellwood went with an idea where humans are only an inch tall.
Her piece, done with pencil crayon and Sharpies, is looking up at a flower.
"I thought if you were really small, the patterns of a flower would be really big and magnified.
"That's why mine has a lot of bold patterns and colours," she says.
Kinsey used fairy tales, Alice in Wonderland in particular, as inspiration for her acrylic painting.
Bourque went with "what if there were no more people in the world" as the theme for her artwork, also an acrylic painting.
"The idea for mine was just nature taking over all the remnants of humanity," she says.
The show's gala opening is today from 6 to 8 p.m.
The show runs until May 27.
