Last year Glynn A. Green Public School in Fonthill, finished their update and transformation of their old library, which now includes display areas for local professional artist’ work. For the month of September, my artwork will be on display, so if are at the school, or nearby stop in to see my artwork.
Stephanie Rehkopf, the parent volunteer coordinating the monthly artist shows, saw my work at the Heirlooms Artisan Market at Vemeer’s this summer and thought my paintings, particularly with all the animals and wildlife that become subjects of my paintings, would really appeal to the students.
The Fox Family Learning Commons is beautiful and has become the hub of the school. The old library hadn’t been updated since the school opened. The transformation from library to learning area took a year and half and approximately $60,000.
With help from the Fox family and their $25,000 donation, various community donations, a comical trivia night and other events hosted by the schools parents committee of 27, raised money for technology, desktops and furniture. The Fox Family Learning Commons consists of new and old bookcases, 4,000 new books and the McGregor Family Reading Centre, which consists of a big reading carpet with one comfy black leather chair and several paintings.
