Canadian China Student Exchange

For three years students from Canada went to China and students from China came to Canada for a 10 day art camp. The partners involved in the exchange were Yang Mythos Art Education Company and Yuan Ling Primary School in Shen Zhen, Ecole St. Avila with principal Gordon Campbell and artist Karen Cornelius and Michael Boss at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.

Students lived with host families and many fun art and cultural activities were planned. At the close of each student exchange an exhibition of student work was held at the Children’s Palace in Shen Zhen and at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in Winnipeg.

The Canadian students marveled at the tall buildings, efficient transit system and unusual food in China, while the Chinese students loved bacon, Canadian wildlife, nature, and our blue sky.
