The workshop is offered for free to youth ages 13-20, with priority given to people of colour. Space is limited and participants are encouraged to register by submitting the form below.

This workshop series is for youth who would like to gain new creative expression skills. No previous artistic experience is necessary. The workshop facilitators will share their work, teach their craft and share how art can be a vehicle for self-expression in your life.
Please stay tuned for an artist and youth showcase in December where participants will have an opportunity to share their work. The showcase will open to the public!
