Student art a bright spot in uptown Port Alberni

To the Editor,

I just had to take this moment to send big kudos to Mrs. Ostwald and her Grade 12 art class for making such a wonderful contribution to the uniqueness of Port Alberni.

One of four garbage bins decorated by Anne Ostwald’s high school art class is located near the Royal Bank on Third Avenue. An uptown merchant says thanks to the students for the bright spot on the street.

To the Editor,

I just had to take this moment to send big kudos to Mrs. Ostwald and her Grade 12 art class for making such a wonderful contribution to the uniqueness of Port Alberni.

I hope everyone will take a few minutes to look at the great hand-painted garbage cans the students did. One is on Third Avenue by the Royal Bank. There is one in Blair Park, another at the water park at Roger Creek and at the playground at Harbour Quay.

There are also murals at Clutesi Haven Marina, and down by the fish plant.

I hope Mrs. Ostwald will continue with this in her art classes next year; the work is wonderful. Thank you to the students for their truly wonderful project. I am looking forward to seeing more.

Barb Mellaart,

Port Alberni
