Barriere Elementary School is once again getting ready to celebrate Art For Others.  Students have been working with artists from our community, and the visiting artists volunteered their time to work with students on an original project.  The finished project is a wonderful piece of creative art,  which is being donated to Art For Others and being offered for sale to the general public on Wednesday, May 1.  The event will run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.  This year the money raised from the proceeds will be donated to the Splash Park.

Along with the art work our 4475 Bistro will be open offering up baking for dessert, coffee and beverages to enjoy.  The grade 7 class will also be selling hotdogs, hamburgers and refreshments.  There will be entertainment throughout the evening, including the strings program.

Among some of the volunteers were Mary MacLellan and Steve Rainer, who made stepping stones in the grade 3 classroom, Wayne Broomfield made water colour cards with the grade 6/7’s, and Shelley Ewashina created beautiful knife/fork/spoon wind chimes.  In addition, Bev Anderson, Leanne Eustache and Dennis Farquharson volunteered their time.
