Artists in the classroom highlight | St'a7mes (Stawamus) School and The Cinematheque

Image description: A view of the Squamish Valley and Howe Sound. In the foreground is a grassy field. The sound is in the middle of the image. In the background is the mountains that surround the Squamish Valley.   Each year artists and educators collaborate to provide students arts-based experiences through the Artists in the Classroom grant.

The AIC grant has allowed for dynamic arts-integrated projects to continue in schools in a safe and innovative way. One example is the collaboration between The Cinematheque and students from St'a7mes (Stawamus) School.
