VMES - Vincent Massey Elementary School
Jantje and Andrea visited all the students in K-6 at Vincent Massey Elementary School. Each student created a work of art based on a Master Artist from history. Each classroom studied a different artist.
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.
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.
Jantje and Andrea volunteered to teach the Grade 3 students and VMES how to make clay gadget fish.

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.
