Williams Lake/ Punky Lake Summer 2016 Diary- Part 4: Day 2 The Wall

Recall: Part 3- Day 1

Today: Williams Lake/ Punky Lake Summer 2016 Diary- Part 4: Day 2 The Wall

It doesn’t take long to make connections and on the morning of Day 2 it was evident we were all a connected and creative group building new bonds and friendships!

Ann Guichon (of Punky Lake Wilderness Camp Society)  generously drove me out this morning to the Old School Training and Recreation Complex in Riske Creek.

We started the day by making name tags for the wall:


As the group continued to work on their name tags, I took some students into the kitchen to create a GIANT pot of wheatpaste (flour, water, sugar, white glue):


We then went onto WOLF drawings (preceded by a beautiful story and song by Gary, the elder, about his grandmother and the wolf).


We were treated to a fantastic lunch!


Then it came time to add the first layer to the wall!  (Thank you to all my helpers who cut out all the drawings)



It was messy and delirious and so much fun!  Tomorrow we add the rest of the drawings that I found at the end of the day:


We will also add new drawings, words and photographs!


I want to thank and acknowledge the Toosey (Tl’esqox) and Tsihquot’in First Nations, Old School Training and Recreation Complex and Punky Lake Wilderness Camp Society (Sarah Jackman, Samantha Dick, Bruce Baptiste, Ann Guichon) for hosting the Summer 2016 Art Camp.  I also want to thank and acknowledge the chef, the photographer, the chaperones, youth workers and the participants!
