The valley has been decorated with some amazing pieces of artwork.

Greentre Art 1Some of the Greetree School art on display downtown.

Students at Greentree School have produced art pieces inspired by famous Canadian artists in celebration of Canada's 150 Anniversary.

"What I first wanted to do was get 150 pieces of art for the 150 anniversary, but as classes started joining in I realized I was going to have more than 150 art pieces and had no idea where I was going to put them all," explained  Regan Burfield, grade 5/6 teacher at Greentree school. "So I thought well why I don't I go around town and maybe the library would want to display them, but the library could not fit them all."

"If I can put these up around town and get people looking at them, maybe people will start going into these businesses that they haven't been to before or haven't been to in a while," she added.

Displays of the artwork can be found at 3rd Avenue Arts, CC's Closet, the Badlands Gallery, Drumheller Public Library, Ivy's Awesome Kitchen & Bistro, Freson Bros and Bold Effex. It's even turned into a fun contest for the students.

"So for the month of May they have all been given a ballot and they are going around town with their families trying to find these art installations that we have up and getting a little information for each one like what class created it or what Canadian artist inspired it," said Burfield. "Then at the end of the month if they finish the ballot they bring it back to the school and enter it in for a draw."

A raffle will be held and three 'dinner and a movie' prize packages will be given away.
