The creative spirit is alive and well in 33 grade 7 students at Stratford Northwestern School.

They have collaborated to produce a large art piece this winter.

The students created squares that have been joined together to make a poster-size (framed) collaborative piece that is now being auctioned off to the highest bidder.

All members of the community are welcome to bid on this colourful piece.

The proceeds of the auction will go towards future collaborative art projects.
