Field Trip to the Fire-Hall (Part II)

Over the past two weeks we have welcomed grade Primary to grade 5 classes from the Lunenburg Academy into our studios to offer them a unique look at what happens in an artist's studio. Through hands-on demonstrations, we introduced them to our working methods and talked to them about what it means to be an artist. The Fire-Hall became alive with their thoughtful questions and meaningful responses. We look forward to working with them again soon when we lead art workshops for them at the Academy.
