Everyone was getting creative when creating their plants. Some did not turn out as planned but that’s okay because the children made earth monsters.
No tears for Essar and Rachel, happy as ever.

This was a crazy week at Art City. Fashion and Fabrics meant making wallets, pencils cases and hand bags out of duck tape, a million different types of jewellery and silk screening.

At Evergreen Brickworks

This summer was a great one at Art City. We had new youth from different ages join our summer program and are now eager to come back in the fall. Each week we went on different field rips around the city that reflected the theme of the week. Almost all trips were outdoors so everyone could enjoy the hot summer weather.

Art City thanks everyone who donated and volunteered to make the summer program a great success.
