Art Flood: Putting It All Together

At four o’clock on April 4th, I delivered our labelled river stories to the Shawnessy Public Library; this, after making certain I took a photograph of each student sitting on the comfy chair, with their art piece on their lap. (these, to be shared with the parents of our classroom only)  Numbered and placed side-by-side, the individual art stories tell the story of a community that struggled, rebuilt and now awaits spring with a certain amount of anticipation. Our class hopes that Mayor Nenshi will enjoy our Art Flood effort and that the City of Calgary will remember the stories of a group of twenty grade ones, living in the suburbs, as being important.  Along with all Calgarians, we remember the flood of 2013.

  1. Wonderful series Kathleen, I really enjoyed reading them all. I said it before and will say it again, the children you work with are blessed to have you as you are blessed to have them. You are a very special teacher as much as you are an artist…thank you for this endearing and meaningful sharing…
