See tomorrow’s artistic talent today… in our 2017 Kids’ Community Calendar!
Each year, in partnership with local elementary and middle schools, we produce our very own community calendar featuring artwork from students across the Kootenays. The quality of the artwork year after year is always exceptional; making the task of paring down the mountain of entries we receive to the ones we feature in the calendar quite a challenge.
In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, the theme for this year is Kootenay Kids Celebrate Canada. We asked students and teachers to show why they think Canada is great – the wildest wildlife, the coolest glaciers, the friendliest flag - and almost 1400 students from 28 schools shared with us why they are proud to be Canadians! As a thank-you for participating in the program, all eligible schools receive $500 to put towards art supplies, field trips and other enrichment activities. The featured artists are also awarded a special memento to showcase their winning piece of art.
