Create opportunities for young people to build self-esteem, confidence and expand their outlook through education and self-expression with the Arts. This helps young people find additional ways to be inspired and deal with the challenges in their life to become empowered adults and agents of change for their future and our community.

We enjoyed bringing Multicultural inventors museum back to Willow Park JPS for another AMAZINGexhibit of inventors of Aboriginal heritage.  It was great to see the children learning about the creations that they didn’t know about.

We worked with the young people at City Hope Summer Camp to create their Canada to celebrate Canada 150.  They created their own quilt painting, stitching, printing, it kept growing bigger and bigger. The finished product was amazing!

DIY Art club    Willow Park JPS here are some of the ‘gems’ from our programs.  SHOUT OUT these three ‘gems’ Marwa, Tisya and Abintha. These 11yr old young  ladies created their own art club in school this year called DIY art club (sign up, rules and all!) They meet 1 x week during lunch and create fun art projects. Take a look at last week’s DIY Snowflake! I’m SO inspired!
