Owl Art by Cortes School

Cortes Museum & Archives
Shakespeare, the Barred Owl ambassador from the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society in the Comox Valley, inspired the students at Cortes Elementary Secondary School on a recent visit to Cortes Island. Shakespeare enchanted the children with his regal presence, and became the subject of a beautiful series of wax relief, watercolour paintings done by students in the kindergarten/grade 1/grade 2 class.

Seven of these 12 paintings are now on display at the Museum. These seven paintings will remain on display until they are replaced by the remaining six paintings on Wednesday, August 7th. Be sure to stop by the Museum & check out both "sets" of these bright & beautiful creations made by the Cortes School, just across the street from the Cortes Museum!
