Blyth Academy Art Teacher Featured on SCAD Art Sales

Blyth Academy London is pleased to share that our Art teacher Awadh Baryoum, has had some of his drawings featured on SCAD Art Sales.

Awadh said this about his work:

“They are part of my new series in which I continue to work with the intention of depicting things that can be concurrently recognizable and unrecognizable while pursuing traditional approaches that maintain the representational aspects of drawing and painting. My process is a deliberate attempt to create imaginative pictorial illusion in which the imagery seems to resemble arbitrary biomorphic shapes and natural formations, and ambiguously relates to living organisms and geological structures suggesting growth and equilibrium. The imagery in my work, as well, delivers nonlinear narratives of multiple and mutable meanings through which the viewers may find themselves engaged and invited to generate their own interpretations and develop their own stories.”

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction.  The Blyth Academy model of small class sizes, flexible scheduling and individualized approach have enabled us to remain faithful to our standards. Our commitment to ongoing and meaningful communication between school, teachers, students and families has been critical to this effort.

Although our students have transitioned into summer mode and COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen, we are looking ahead to what September will hold for our campuses and families.
We want to be clear - our preference and our priority is to get students back to our campuses, but we must ensure this is done in a safe and effective way. While we await official guidance from Public Health and the Ministry of Education, a "return to school" task force has been hard at work putting concrete operational plans in place for all likely scenarios. This includes a full return to campus with safeguards, a blended model of virtual and in-campus learning and the continuation of fully virtual classrooms. All scenarios will provide robust learning and live, daily instruction and interaction with teachers and peers. 
With ten campuses across Ontario, we realize that each one of our schools is a unique space and community. We will be implementing across-the-board policies on hand washing, facility cleaning and social distancing measures. Each school is also prepared to pivot individually based on the guidance of local health authorities and to best serve students and families. 
Our recent survey showed that over 80 per cent of Blyth Academy families are eager to return to campuses, and we are hard at work to prepare for this day. As September's scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.
