Celebrations – 03

In Spring 2021, Richmond Food Stories collaborated with students from McKay Elementary’s Grade 6/7 classes to create an art work series for “Eating in the Time of COVID-19.” By engaging students to reflect on pandemic experiences through art, each young artist produced a unique illustration in response to the following prompts: How have you celebrated special occasions during COVID-19? What was it like to go grocery shopping when the pandemic first started? How has home cooking and eating changed for your family since the pandemic?

“In my drawing, I drew two frogs celebrating a birthday party over zoom. I chose frogs because they are my favourite animal. I made the frogs have a birthday party over Zoom because that’s how I celebrated my birthday, along with other special occasions including Christmas and New Year’s Eve.”

— McKay Elementary, Grade 6 student
