Students from our English-Ukrainian Bilingual Program recently completed a year-long project on the Ukrainian community's heritage of stained glass. They visited the studio of stained-glass designer Ben Wasylyshen, several Ukrainian churches, and the University of Manitoba archives. Then, Mr. Wasylyshen visited their classrooms to nurture their creativity.
The result is a beautiful colouring book—produced by all the students and photographed by teacher Norbert Iwan—to commemorate 40 years of Ukrainian education in RETSD. Each student contributed at least one design to the book.
There will be a public celebration of its publication on May 16 at the Oseredok Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre. If you're interested in buying a copy, they're $10 each and will be available at the Oseredok Centre while supplies last. Proceeds will go to the English-Ukrainian Bilingual Program.
