ST. JOHN’S

As part of a recent ArtSmarts project, Grade Five students at St. Andrew’s Elementary were asked to invent a magic flying machine based on the designs of Leonardo da Vinci. The real challenge was imagining what they’d see from their inventions. Find out what 60 children can do with a little paint, inspiration from artist Elayne Greeley Noble and a lot of imagination as their work is shown in the exhibition Views from a Flying Machine: Sixty Imaginative Paintings by the Students of the St. Andrew’s Elementary School ArtSmarts Project, Jan. 11-23, 2002 at the Art Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador . Free admission. Info-line: 737-8209.
