The vision: Create a HUGE mural

in the hamlet of Blackie Alberta!

Involve art students in the process, and beautify the community.


Christi is working with some students in Blackie School to plan, design and execute this mural. Proposed completion is by Oct 2020. 


Due to school closures, 

this is now a community 

project. Students & families

who want to participate in 

painting must CONTACT

Christi Tims. AHS up-to-date

recommendations will be 

followed as painting proceeds.

Completion date is estimated

as fall 2020. 


Thank you to the High River Times for helping us spread the word about our innovative project!

They published the first informative article in December, 2019.

Funding is required to complete this project! If you can help by donating funds, please CONTACT Christi if your business or organization is able to help. 

All contributors will be credited on the mural, and in the media. Thank you! 

Great news! Thanks to the Okotoks Arts Council and many other community members and organizations, the project funding has been obtained!

We are currently looking for painting participants, and would like all families of Blackie School students, as well as community members to volunteer to paint. Please CONTACT Christi if you're interested.
