Cowichan Lake area ‘art bombed’ for fun Easter competition

Collaboration leads to fun community contest

On Saturday morning, the Cowichan Lake area will be “Art Bombed” with Easter eggs!

Palsson Elementary School students, with their teacher Tessa Couch, have decorated many, many Easter eggs and those eggs will be hanging in communities around the Lake until Easter Monday, April 18.

“My students and I were excited to be asked to participate in the Easter egg bomb,” Couch said.

“We love creating collaborative art projects in our school and jumped at the chance to do one for our Lake communities. We want our families to be happy and excited as they discover all our beautiful eggs around town.”

Not only are the beautifully decorated eggs fun to look at and will most definitely spread the joy to many travelling in and around the area, there’s a chance you could win a prize for spotting them!

How many eggs do you see hanging in the trees? Take lots of pictures, said organizers.

South Shore Cabinetry generously provided the material and labour to cut the eggs out for the Palsson students to decorate, but you won’t get any hints about just how many were cut and painted.

“The person who counts the most eggs will find that the Easter Bunny has something special for them,” said Kathie Fielding, president of the Cowichan Lake Arts and Culture Society. “Send a photo, your count, and the egg’s locations to: kathie@cowichanlakeartsandculture.org and we will post the winner on our Facebook page.

Fielding explained that Ladysmith Arts Council has done Art Bombing in Ladysmith for a while and that group suggested the Cowichan Lake Arts and Culture Society give it a whirl, too.

Fielding expects it to be as successful as it is in Ladysmith.

“We are now thinking about Halloween, with fluorescent paints, just need to decide the shape,” she pondered. “[There are] lots of possibilities.”
