HAPPY PRIDE WEEK!

On May 31st, Central Commerce Collegiate (CCC)  students, accompanied by accomplished artists and designers, ventured out of the classroom to exhibit their art works at Walnut Contemporary Gallery. Throughout the school year, students worked directly with creative professionals who donated their time and expertise to inspire this new generation of artistes.  The culminating result is “HeART this”,  a mixed media art and photography show that featured an anti-bullying meets high fashion segment . Students beat boxed and performed opera arias alongside a local deejay who worked with students enrolled in CCC’s DJ Club.

The crowd was an eclectic mix.  From Bay St rollers to underground graffiti artists, everyone enjoyed the vibe. There was dance performances by Toronto’s Northbuck Crump Crews.  CCC students along with style icons Myles Sexton, Derek Friday and the Sparks Twins modeled Dutch Blonde leggings and Global Warming Tees. We take No Bull-ying tees were proudly displayed as the fashion segment focused on the “art of acceptance”.  Professional stylists and super-star Nelly Furtado assisted with hair, makeup and wardrobe.

“The event was one of the coolest experiences of my life. The atmosphere was amazing and it was great to see how all the hard work we put into the show really paid off”.  Henrik Bang, Grade 11 student and Event Host.

“This was a new experience for me, I was astonished to be surrounded by so much great art. I was also inspired by the overall vibe and felt a connection with the beauty of the art”. Robert Pereira, Grade 11  student and Opera Singer.

“An arts education is the thread that holds together the fabric of a future rich in culture and diversity”, said Beckie Di Leo, Curriculum Leader and Fine Artist. "Special thanks goes out to the TDSB, Ministry of Education, Specialist High Skills Majors Program(SHSM), and UPHS grants."
