A group of budding young artists from the student art fusion has pooled their talents to create a large wall painting with the theme, ‘Our Rimbey Community.’

The art fusion project was created by the class this fall as its legacy project.

“Our objective was to learn some techniques in art such as graduations and resists and design and use them to create a grander work as it comes together,” said Sharon Johnston, president of the Rimbey Art Club.

The club plans to donate the painting to the town.

“We want to donate it as a token of our positive feeling of being part of a work of art and part of something grander … a community,” said Johnston.

The student art fusion, one of the club’s seven programs, is in its third year of operation.

The art club runs a fall and winter series of art fusion which is comprised of eight sessions each.

Students register for the program through the Town of Rimbey and the art club provides the studio and instruction on art concepts and elements and also comes up with a variety of projects.

Tracy Davis manages the program.

Margreet Beekman, Jan Boyarzin, Tracy Davis, Cassidy Davis, Eliabeth Jones, Grace Johnson, Sharon Johnston, Dawn Nawrot, Sandra Peacock, Annette Peck and Mandy Swanson have all contributed their time and talent to teaching a variety of courses during the time the art fusion group has been operational.

Donors who have helped keep the art group afloat include Bonavista, Rimbey, Clear Creek Oilfield and Gull Lake Golf Course.

2015 will mark the 50th anniversary for the art club.

“As the RAC proceeds into 2015, our 50th anniversary year, we reflect on what a responsibility we have to keep the club alive and well for this generation, and the ones to come. We welcome all those who have any interest in the art and offer various avenues to pursue their creative endeavours,” said Johnston. “We have presently a number of variety projects that sustain us and we think future is bright,” she added.
