Lantern Forest - Vancouver Lunar Festival 2010

I wandered downtown Vancouver the other night with some friends and came across the Lantern Forest Display. It was so lovely and fun that I had to snap a few pics to show you!There were elaborate lantern designs by different artists, but the trees were what really caught my attention. Look at all those waxed drawings done by elementary school students! The wax makes the images really bright and colourful.

I wonder if they waxed the drawings after they were drawn or whether they scanned and printed them onto some kind of waxy paper?
I love 'em!

You can read more about them here.
