If this sounds familiar it’s because high school students of North Vancouver were given this exact challenge earlier this year. (See related press release) Not to be outdone, seven North Vancouver elementary schools were asked the same question by the North Vancouver RCMP Youth Intervention Unit (YIU). While working in their respective schools, the youth officers along with the support of School District 44 created project Community Canvas 2.0. Officers provided the canvases, paint, and brushes and asked the students to answer that question: what does community look like to you?

From grades one to seven, these artist’s finished works are truly impressive and creative, said organizer Cpl. Marlies Dick of YIU. The general public is warmly invited to come to the RCMP Detachment to enjoy the art work.

All forty-seven paintings will be on display in the North Vancouver RCMP lobby until Wednesday, June 21, 2017. The North Vancouver RCMP Detachment is located at 147 East 14th Street. Front counter hours are Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 7:00 pm with Saturday and Sunday hours 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
