Art together

Visiting for the Grand Opening of the Dream Big Montessori School, Susan Bibbings conducted a wonderful Vancouver-Mwanza school to school international art swap project thanks to¬† Vancouver teacher Laura Clancy. It was Laura’s idea to have her Vancouver Kindergarten students paint BC salmon which Susan transported as a gift to the Dream Big School, then the new students painted Tanzanian zebras as a gift back to the Vancouver young artists. It was the first time these children had done art, and it was a magical experience for them. Their art is truly magnificent and the children showed they have an innate love of colour! These works of zebra art will be on display February 15th and the Skoolaid Musical Gala, and will also be made into gift card sets. Thank you Laura for your wonderful bridge of art and friendship!! Here are some of Laura’s students BC salmon on permanent display at the Dream Big School…
