Enjoy the Semá:th X̱ó:tsa Sts'ólemeqwelh Sx̱ó:tsa (Semá:th X̱ó:tsa Great-Gramma’s Lake) book walk with your family on the front lawn of FVRL Clearbrook lawn, then head over to The Reach to take part in this activity for the whole family!

Based on the Semá:th X̱ó:tsa children’s book, participants will examine historical photographs of Sumas Lake as a reference for their own miniature painting of the lake. Instead of a canvas, participants will create their painting on a wooden round that can be turned into an ornament or magnet once your painting is complete.

This activity is developed and delivered by The Reach Gallery Museum with generous support from the City of Abbotsford.
