Johann's Owl from Mrs. Burgess' Class

Students in Mrs. Burgess' and Ms Holmes' classes learned and developed their drawing skills with visiting artist, Maureen Proctor. Using oil pastels they created their own owl. The purpose of the  "Artist in the Classroom" program, sponsored by the SSI Arts Council, is to give the arts a stronger presence in the everyday lives of students by bringing the artists of Salt Spring Island to class to share their skills and to create an awareness of arts in our community.
