Thirteen local and international chalk artists transformed the parking lot asphalt into a colourful art gallery during the full day celebration. This family friendly event hosted a range of interactive displays, arts and crafts activities, face painting and live entertainment.
Coverage of a school based art program run by the Burnaby Art Gallery. The program is designed to educate students about the intersecting histories of math and art and to introduce them to artists who used mathematics in their work. In this hands-on class, kids create works of art using pattern, tessellation and origami paper folding.
Photos were later used in various marketing materials for the program.
This video features the work of Vancouver based Elements Society and their project Destination Conservation, which brings together students, educators, and school custodians so they can develop practical plans to conserve energy and water and reduce waste at school.
