COEUR d’ALENE — Art created in collaboration with Hayden artist Anne Hedin and Sorensen Magnet School students will be on display during ArtWalk from 3 to 8 tonight in The Coeur d'Alene Resort Shops.

Hedin and the students have spent the last two weeks creating large-scale art pieces for the "Sorensen Art Residency Special Exhibit."

"All of the K-2 grade students were involved as they drew on my giant canvas art pieces each individually," Hedin said. "The school will auction three of these pieces off next year to help raise funds for the arts program and the other five smaller pieces will be donated to the school library so that kids can check out these art pieces like library books and enjoy having them in their own home."

ArtWalk is a program of the nonprofit Coeur d'Alene Arts and Culture Alliance. Every second Friday throughout the year, community members are invited to enjoy art, refreshments and music in galleries, restaurants and shops along the downtown corridor. It goes from 5 to 8 tonight.

The Resort Shops are at 210 Sherman Ave.
