Peer Pressure

Art Students of Prince George Secondary School

Sponsored by Top Notch Personnel and Valley Pacific Beverages Inc.

Over the years, it has become a tradition for the gallery to feature at least one exhibition of student art a year. This year the focus is on teenagers. Over 100 art students of instructor, Maureen Faulkner of Prince George Secondary School, are the participating artists. This group was chosen because of their continuing interest in and support of the gallery in past years.

The gallery chose “peer pressure” as a theme because it is an issue that all teenagers have to deal with on many levels – personal values, education, jobs, in their social lives and in their home lives.

The students’ preliminary discussion focused on:

  • Sources of their personal value system,
  • How and why values change,
  • Kinds of pressure they have experienced,
  • Sources of that pressure,
  • Self-esteem, both generally and in peer pressure situations,
  • Confidence in own decisions,
  • How they would deal with the situations discussed above, if they were a parent.

The works you see here are the visual expression of these discussions.

The students were simply given a theme; the gallery placed no restrictions on medium, technique or approach. The students set up their own panel, consisting of one student from each class, to adjudicate their submissions with the help of Denise Panchysyn, the curator/director of the gallery.

The results show a diversity and sense of creativity that is truly remarkable.
