It was William S Burroughs who suggested that: “The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values”. If you have a child who is about to graduate, or the sibling of a relative or dear friend who is about to move on from their schools, colleges or universities, you will surely want to mark this transition point in their life in a way that is both personal and memorable.
Of course, as actress and comedian Carol Burnett said: “We don’t stop going to school when we graduate”. It does, however, mark one of life’s key transition points. With a personalized piece of Canadian art from celebrated artist David Crighton as an enduring gift, the person in your thoughts will fondly remember that pivotal moment as they forge ahead with their lives, in whichever direction this might take them.
As you'll see when you glance through the many pieces of stunningly cool art throughout this website, it might be an example of landscape art or painting, a stunning representation of local architecture or one of many historical landmarks or unique buildings. Equally, you might choose a piece of digital art, or from one of many terrific wall art ideas. Another possibility is a piece that reflects an aspect of the lifestyle the recipient has enjoyed as their education progressed. We offer both digital reproduction on archival paper and ready to hang floating frame canvases in a trio of sizes.
Specifically for graduation, you might want to focus on the place where the person has completed their education. If so, do take the time to look at David’s growing collection of educational buildings.
These already include key “Alma Maters” such as Appleby College , Crescent School, and Bishop Strachan School, the Central Technical and Art School, Humberside Collegiate Institute, and Kings College Circle. Throughout the website, you'll also find a range of stunning art pictures of many of the individual buildings which together form part of the University of Toronto campus.
When selecting a piece of art to celebrate the achievement of graduation, you'll certainly be looking for a chance to make it both personal and unique. This is where the range of artwork and pictures offered by David Crighton truly comes into its own. Using his close to four decades of art creation experience, all the art images that he offers can be personalized to deliver exactly the message you wish to send or the overall image you want to create. This can be achieved by the adding to the piece of specific names, dates, and other information, or by the addition of unique additional artwork.
If you don’t see the specific Toronto location that you are keen to find on the website, it’s worth a call to 416-414-6423 as David is always working to expand this portfolio, or is happy to accept a personalized commission.
Legendary New York mayor Ed Koch once told graduates: “The fireworks begin today. Each diploma is a lighted match. Each one of you is a fuse”. A carefully chosen piece of artwork can surely serve as a lasting reminder to each individual of the place and time where they started to burn so brightly!
