Olivia Saves the Circus- magical stopmotion by KLASS students June 2010

During the 2009-2010 school year, I had the pleasure of co-facilitating (along with my colleague, Ian Powell) an animation course at Keith Lynn Alternative Secondary School.  It was truly a magical experience as the students recreated (with incredible ingenuity) the story of OLIVIA SAVES THE CIRCUS by Ian Falconer.

Attended an incredible YOUTH ART SHOW last night at Keith Lynn, North Vancouver

Walking into the gym and seeing over 400 original pieces of art by  Keith Lynn students was astounding!  Proper photos will be shared soon as I collect them from various sources.  The students and their facilitators- Sara Place, Erin Ross and Ian Powell, put on an incredible show!  CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU ALL!

The following is just a small sample of the incredible work presented last night:

A beautiful light display was installed in the hallway (ink drawing on tracing paper)

And the latest animation project- Where the Wild Things Are– was premiered and it was ASTOUNDING.  OMG!

The creatures created by the students, facilitated by Erin Ross, are incredible!!!

It was hard being back in a place that means so much to me- lots of intense memories to say the least- but it was blissful and easy at the same time.  Reconnecting with the beautiful students and staff is beyond delicious.

And I purchased artwork by several students, which I will be picking up this coming week and sharing here!

YOUTH ART SHOW AND SALE! April 19, 2012 5-7 PM at Keith Lynn, North Vancouver

UPDATE APRIL 20, 2012:

Read blog post about the show!  It was an INCREDIBLE EVENT!

I am absolutely ecstatic to extend an invite to one and all to an extraordinary art event at Keith Lynn Alternative Secondary School on April 19, 2012!!!

I had the pleasure of being the in-house art therapist at Keith Lynn from Feb 2008 to June 2011.  I miss it deeply and cannot wait to see this show!  It is the brain-child of my amazing colleagues: Sara Place, Erin Ross and Ian Powell.  These 3 have taken on an enormous and daring project and I applaud them for it.

The buzz around the school must be escalating daily as art is being pumped out continuously!  And that art is top notch.  You’ve seen a lot of it featured on this blog and my art blog in the past.  These kids are so creative and talented and are now eager to share their work with the world.  Let’s honor them by celebrating with them on April 19!!!

The invite is created by student and artist extraordinaire: Sabrina L.
