The Things We Find

I ran across a dead Barn Owl the other day while hiking. I’ve never seen one so up close. They’re a beautiful bird with various kinds of feathers, some short and downy, others long and overlapping. Even their colours reminded me of how form fits function: the white around the eyes to reflect light and the brown to camouflage with the natural colours of the forest. Getting out in nature is important. You see things so differently then when you are surrounded by things of towns and cities.

You Need Art - Leap Outside the Box

Last week, I may have gotten it wrong. Then again, maybe the title of this week’s post is wrong, too. Maybe Art needs you and you need art!

On April 7 Youlearn will be kicking off its Artist in Residence Program from 10:30 - 3:00 pm in Oliver. For more information on this amazing opportunity check out this week’s NewsNotes. Also, here is a link to the Leap Outside the Box online registration form, needing to be filled out before March 31s to help us plan for the event. Thanks.

Enjoy your break. See you in April!
