Nemaska hosts its first virtual art exhibition

The Regional Art Exhibition took place in the hallways of the Luke Mettaweskum School from April 26 to 30, 2021. This year's exhibition was a little different; Nemaska students joined in person and students from other schools participated virtually.

Students from Pre-Kindergarten to Secondary V had the chance to participate in four categories: Paint, Drawing, Illustration, and Mixed Media. The first-place winners will have their artwork displayed in the head offices of the Cree School Board in Chisasibi and Mistissini for a year.
