Queen Alex Students Collaborate with Professional Artists on a Mural Project

Queen Alexandra Elementary intermediate students have been painting their school walls with a rainbow of colours. The school has collaborated with two professional artists, George Littlechild and Linda Frimer, on the creation of a 7 X 30 foot canvas mural project.

The theme of the project is "Your Story, My Story, Our Story, Together We Create Community". Students were guided through a process where they identified, drew, and painted a symbol that represented something from their culture onto the eight sheets of canvas.

Following the mural portion of the project, students were asked to write down their own story. School community families were also encouraged to write their story.

Principal Cheryl Matthews says that all the stories will be compiled into a school community booklet.
