And that's a Wrap!: Pollinator Mural at Sexsmith Elementary

We are now finished our ArtStarts residency at Sexsmith. We had a great time and really enjoyed the creative students. We have lots of great memories and all these incredible pieces of art!

The grade six class helped build the pollinator hotel designed by Evan Hutchinson  and drew these beautiful zen doodles.

The grade fours made fabulous pollinator pillows or stuffies.

Many students learned to sew for the first time.

Heather Talbot and I created a mural so that the whole school could see how the creativity blossomed.

Another grade 6 class made these collages and botanical drawings.

 The grade twos imagined what a pollinator hotel might look like.

On Earth Day, students from all classes made thank you notes to the bees.

 The kindergarten class planted wildflower seeds for the bees and the grade four class planted sunflowers for the bees.

And voila! The fantastic new pollinator hotel stands next to the school garden.

A baby lupin appears in a garden  bed. Please transplant into the hillside garden!

And here are the other lupins which will soon bloom and feed the bees.

A big thanks to everyone who took part in the project and a special thanks to Cheryl who was the creative force behind the project and the green team and many amazing projects. Happy retirement to you!
