Aspen Park Elementary School hosts an event dubbed Art for the Outdoors Wednesday evening at the Comox school. It’s an opportunity to showcase local talent while raising funds for a schoolyard enhancement project.

When the school was created in 2008, it was placed into a building previously used as a middle school. Students, teachers and parents envisioned outdoor and indoor spaces conducive to elementary students, including a vegetable garden, mini orchard, trails and a wetland area.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Bids close at 8 p.m.

There will be a dessert bar and entertainment.

Donations of art are being accepted at the school office until Wednesday.

Alternative arrangements can be made. Call 250-890-0944.

Aspen Park is located at 2250 Bolt Ave.
