Grade 12 art students at Kelowna Senior Secondary have been hard at work on an intercultural mural.

“The idea behind it was to create an educational piece to showcase some of the truths behind the culture of First Nations people,” said lead artist Sheldon Louis, a local First Nation member.

About 20 students from the honours art class have worked on sections of the massive mural for several months.

“We haven’t done anything on this scale ever before. It’s been an incredible experience for me as a teacher, seeing all their knowledge put into the artwork, ” said instructor Tim Mayer.

The project received a community partnership grant through UBC Okanagan and the Ki-Low-Na Friendship Centre.

No set home has been decided for the mural as of yet, but it will be on display for several weeks at the UBCO gallery.
