For 2 weeks in April, our artist in residence, Marcia Harris, will be working with the students.  Here is some info about her:
Marcia Harris graduated with distinction in 2004 with a Bachelor of Fine Art at UBC Okanagan
in Kelowna BC. She has had various group and solo shows at commercial galleries throughout BC
and Alberta. In 2007 Harris had her first public art gallery show at the KAG ( Kelowna Art Gallery) 
thematically the show was based on environmental issues – specifically the Pine Beetle Investation-titled:
 “LANDSCAPE AWARENESS”
Then in 2008 Harris had a show with Canadian artist Erik Olsen at formally the CAG ( Art Gallery of Calgary)
tited: REDSHIFT- also on the subject of the Pine Beetle.
From there Harris interest continued with environmental subject matter but shifted to the subject of the honey bees.
More specifically The Colony Collapse Disorder.
in terms of paint application, Harris’ landscapes portrayed flowering trees made of hundreds of various paint splatter
referencing the movement of the bees, their live/work and the multitude of them in their environment.
Harris has shown in many commercial , public and private spaces since graduating in 2004. Currently she is teaching 
art classes out of her studio and involved in fundraising art related projects at her son’s elementary school.

awareness and observation of your immediate environment. (ie- our living spaces relationship to them)
