We just got the word that we have received a Cultural Opportunities for Youth grant from the NS Department of Tourism ,Culture and Heritage. This grant will allow us to offer another Creative Start Open Studio Program for youth with disabilities and related challenges. This open studio program will be offered in the Spyfield Area and will start in November 2009 for ten weeks. We will be posting the dates and location for the open studio program in the very near future

Creative Start Open Studio Program

The Creative Start Open Studio Program will be offered to youth with disabilities ages 17 - 21 years of age. In this program youth will decide what types of art materials and processes they would like to work with. So if a youth wants to explore drawing for five weeks and painting for another five then we will facilitate this request. At the end of the ten week open studio program we will celebrate the accomplishments of the participants through an exhibition of their art works at Veith Street Gallery

Dates: September 11, 2009 to November 13, 2009
Times: 12:30pm to 3:30pm
Location: Veith House Community Centre, Board Room
3115 Veith Street, Halifax
