Friends of Cortes Island
and the Cortes Island Museums and Archives
invite you to the launch of our wonderful new exhibit created by the students of Cortes Island School.Cortes Island Museum, Friday Dec 07 1:30 – 2:30pm.
The exhibit celebrates the Great Blue Heron, one of our most beautiful and iconic coastal birds and species at risk.
It is the culmination of our Great Blue Herons Come to School Environmental Art Project
led by artist Jane Newman. Jane ran a series of creative art sessions with all three classes throughout the fall semester to celebrate and teach students about this amazing bird. This is a particularly appropriate project for the school, which proudly has the heron as its logo.
Join us for the launch and help the exhibit take flight!
Everyone welcome! Refreshments provided.
The exhibit will remain open through January 2019.
We acknowledge the support of the Campbell River Community Foundation
and the BC Arts Council.
