Student creativity shines in windows

For third year, artists from Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary take their work to town for the holidays.

Students from Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary volunteered their time and talent two weekends ago to paint Christmas scenes on storefront windows in downtown Cloverdale, helping brighten up the season for retailers.

This is the third year in a row the students have decorated windows in the community to help spread holiday cheer, says art instructor Janine Baker.http://webpapersadmin.bcnewsgroup.com/portals/uploads/cloverdale/.DIR288/LTSWindows.jpg

The project was first attempted three years ago in Whalley, and has returned to Cloverdale for the past two years, in partnership with the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association.

The students designed their own templates at school, and transfer them onto the fronts of windows, which were then painted from the inside.

The painting work party was Dec. 5, when student artists headed to the shared offices of the Cloverdale BIA and Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce at 5700 176 Street, and to the empty storefront windows of the former Rogers Video store in Clover Square Village.

The contributing artists:

Megan Benoit and Nicole Greenbaum painted a Snoopy Christmas at the Cloverdale BIA office, while the team at Clover Square Village worked on a number of projects: Tayler Sherstone painted the Lady and the Tramp Tree and Mickey and Minnie Mouse; Antonia Tarbujaru, Kennedy Hoven, and Keicia McArdle painted a scene of cats pulling a sleigh filled with a doll on sleigh and trees; Hawon Kim and Emilee Guildfoyle painted a white snowy scene; Linghyan Zheng and Xin Jin created the reindeer scene; Jerry Tropeo and Trishia Shae did the Minions; Elyse Dyck painted a bird feeder and cat, and finally, Baker painted the Grinch and Donald Duck.
