In Surrey, a pop-up installation at Guildford Town Centre puts a charitable spin on the old “Doodle Art” hobby.
Launched Monday (Aug. 15) for a couple of weeks, the interactive “Doodle Classroom” offers a colouring project for everyone in the mall’s centre court area (lower level).
Shoppers use markers to add colour to the 950-square-foot, vinyl-walled installation created by Tierney Milne, a Montreal-born designer and artist currently living in Vancouver.
A similar “Classroom” is also located at Metropolis at Metrotown this month, until Sept. 5.
For every visitor to the Doodle Classrooms, $5 will be donated to the Breakfast Club of Canada “to help give all children access to a healthy breakfast to fuel their learning.”
For doodling, shoppers at Guildford Town Centre can enter for a chance to win one of five $1000 back-to-school shopping sprees.
