Della Burford and Dale Bertrand, who illustrated Miracle Galaxy and Magical Earth Secrets, are available for classroom events through the Nanaimo Art Gallery’s Artist in the Schools program. The three programs deal with art and environmental themes. One of Della’s programs focuses on Environmental Posters in which wildlife protection will be emphasized. Dale is also covering environmental themes in Environmental Heroes/Heroines which will emphasize taking care of our wildlife and earth. The third program, Love the Earth, will create a big book for the classroom. Della and Dale will conduct these sessions in March and April, 2011, but such classes must be booked by the beginning of February, 2011. Teachers and parents who feel this program might work for them should call Chris Kuderle at the Nanaimo Art Gallery on the Vancouver Island University campus at 250-740-6350.
