PAST COMMUNITY ART PROJECTS
North Shore Neighbourhood House (NSNH)
Community Art Project in celebration of
NSNH 75th Anniversary 2014
Thanks to a grant received by the North Vancouver Arts Office, Iris Low and myself were able to spend time with various members of the NSNH. We collected drawings from children, adults and seniors. These drawing were then duplicated on the walls of the balcony at the NSNH. The project was completed in October 2014. Take a look at the video. It sums it up very nicely.
RIGHTS OF THE CHILD - PART 2
Community Art Project 2014
District & City of North Vancouver
I was asked to continue with part 2 of this ongoing community art project. Two classes of 30 children, ages 5 - 10, participated in the creation of these two paintings. The goal was to let children explore "the right to play". It was snowing on the first day... and it shows.
This is an ongoing project. The two large artworks will be printed on fabric and displayed on a street lamp or light post in the Lower Lonsdale area in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
THE RIGHT TO PLAY
acrylic on canvas
PAULINE JOHNSON SCHOOL
West Vancouver, BC 2014
I worked with 28 grade 5 students on a gala project for their school. The painting was created with newspaper collage and acrylic paint.
All 28 students were fully engaged and it was a pleasure guiding them step by step through this fun project.
The result a CITY-SCAPE in French
North Shore Neighbourhood House
Teen Parent Project 2013
Iris Low and myself had the pleasure to work with 10 teen parents. Each parent created a painting meaningful to them. The paintings were photographed and adhered to the back entrance of the North Shore Neighbourhood House in North Vancouver. This project improved the aesthetics of the entrance, it built the self-esteem of the parents and is admired by all visitors.
RIGHTS OF THE CHILD
Community Art Project 2012
West Vancouver and North Vancouver
I was engaged as the art project leader to execute two large pieces of art with 60 children ages 5 - 12. Each painting measures 4x6 ft and is created with acrylic paints. Children added images of the theme to raise awareness of a child's rights. This is an ongoing project. The two large artworks traveled from one public venue to the next over a period of 12 months. Now they have found a permanent home here on the North Shore of Vancouver.
