Justin Wonnacutt Visits St-Lawrence School

Artist Justin Wonnacott is traveling across Canada to chronicle the art projects of hundreds of students who have benefited from the ArtsSmarts grants that bring artists like Sylvain Rivard into our classrooms. He dropped by St-Lawrence School earlier this week  to document the mask and petroglyph projects of some of our grade 5 and 6 classes.  Wonnacott is a photographer/artist and a professor of   Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa.

ExpressionArts will be back next year!
