BUILDING A COMMUNITY
Jantje and Andrea visited students in K-3 at Vincent Massey Elementary School. Each classroom (six in total) created its own version of St. Andrews using modeling clay. The finished results were put on display for the town to view.


SUNFLOWER PROJECT
We volunteered to organize a "Sunflower Project" in which all students at Vincent Massey Elementary School would plant sunflowers at Kingsbrae Garden. Prior to the planting, teachers were provided with sunflower learning packets developed by Andrea, so that students could create sunflower art and learn the science of sunflowers. In all, 200+ students took part in the project. We also provided the Garden with art activities for children to take part in, free of charge, at the Kingsbrae during the summer months.


CLAY FISH
Jantje and Andrea volunteered to teach the Grade 3 students and VMES how to make clay gadget fish.


CLAY MASKS
Jantje and Andrea taught Grades 4 - 6 how to make masks made of clay thanks to a grant from the NB Culture and Sports Secretariat.


RATS!
Geoff, Jan and Andrea volunteered to help the students, parents and teachers of Vincent Massey Elementary School create sets for two of their productions.

NARNIA!
Geoff, Jan and Andrea volunteered to help the grade 3 students at Vincent Massey Elementary School, transform their classroom into Narnia.


PLAYGROUND FUNDRAISER
We volunteered with parents to create Christmas crafts with all grades at Vincent Massey Elementary School. All 203 crafts were created to be sold for a playground refurbishment fundraiser.


PERSONAL TOTEMS
Jan and Andrea taught the grade 5 students at Vincent Massey Elementary School how to create personal totem pictures with glue and chalk pastel.


LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS
Jan and Andrea taught the grade 5 students at Vincent Massey Elementary School how to paint landscapes with watercolour.


THE CLASS PROGRAM
When Jan saw the need for art education in the schools, she (in her position as a Sunbury Shores board member), created the CLASS (Children Learning At Sunbury Shores) Program in 2005. This program ensures that all students receive free art lessons during regular school hours. Click here to read more about this innovative program.


WASHROOM MURALS
Geoff, Jan and Andrea added paint to the Girls and Boys washrooms at VMES - to make them look more cheerful.
